The Boston Tea Party

In 1773 Parliament had passed the Tea Act. By reducing the tax on imported British tea, this act gave British merchants an unfair advantage in selling their tea in America. American colonists condemned the act, and many planned to boycott tea.

The result? The Boston Tea Party.

When British tea ships arrived in Boston harbor, many citizens wanted the tea sent back to England without the payment of any taxes. The royal governor insisted on payment of all taxes. On this day in 1773 (December 16), about 50 members of the political organization called the 'Sons of Liberty,' dressed (not very convincingly) as Mohawk Indians. Three ships - the Dartmouth, the Eleanor and the Beaver - were loaded with hundreds of crates of tea. The men,in a very orderly and quiet fashion, boarded the ships and began destroying the cargo. By 9:00 PM they had smashed 342 crates of tea in all three ships and had thrown them into Boston Harbor.

More can be learned of this event at the Boston Tea Party Historical Society, a private, non-profit educational and cultural organization established in 1996 to preserve and share the Boston Tea Party history. The Society collects, preserves and tells the story of the Boston Tea Party through an interactive website and publishing.

New England Ruins
Memories fade, rust gathers, and dust settles after once-vibrant buildings are left to the ravages of time and weather. Before they're razed to make way for progress, a photographic examination of these faded structures provides fascinating study in interior beauty. Through the lens of one astute photographer, this site examines the ruins of the northeastern U.S. Rob Dobi traveled to over 40 sites and snapped what's left of former factories, schools, and hospitals. The result is a haunting portrayal of progress stopped, crumbling interiors, and light shining through the darkened places of the mind's eye. Dobi's stunning look at the way the sun plays with the colors of abandoned places might encourage us all to find the beauty that lies below the surface.
