9781419718748: America's Tea Parties: Not One but Four! Boston, Charleston, New York, Philadelphia

Everyone has heard of the Boston Tea Party, but few know about the other tea parties that took place at the same time. Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, and Charleston all had to deal with the ships from England’s East India Company coming to deliver tea to the colonies—tea that had a very high tax attached. America’s Tea Partiesprovides background on England’s taxation of the colonies, with emphasis on the Stamp and Tea taxes, the larger social and political issues the colonies were having with England, why it was crucial that these tea parties happened, and the revolution these demonstrations led to. The book is illustrated with archival images and includes an author’s note, endnotes, time line, bibliography, and index.

Marissa Moss is the bestselling author of the multimillion-copy bestselling Amelia series, as well as the award-winning Barbed Wire Baseball and the critically acclaimed Nurse, Soldier, Spy. She lives in Berkeley, California. www.marissamoss.com.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-8-Though most students are familiar with the story of how patriots poured tea into Boston Harbor to protest the tax, they may not be aware of the stories of similar tea protests in other colonies. Moss explores four different cities (Boston, Charleston, New York, and Philadelphia), describing how anger over the taxes on tea helped fuel the American Revolution. The historical accounts are expertly told, and readers will be easily drawn in. The author explains why the tax was initially put into place and then moves through the events surrounding the selling of tea. Primary documents that include letters, advertisements, maps, and newspaper articles are interwoven. VERDICT A great purchase for supplementing American Revolution curriculum units.-April Sanders, Spring Hill College, Mobile, ALα(c) Copyright 2011.
