    One thought on “America's Tea Parties: Not One but Four! Boston, Charleston, New York, Philadelphia”

    1. Mostly good account of the colonial protest against Britain's taxation without representation, which led to the American Revolution. Lots of reproductions of primary source documents, including broadsides, art, letters, etc. Moss traces the history of the law, the mounting insurgency, the major players in the planning and execution, and more. It's meant to place the reader at the scene, so to speak.I took off a star because of the unevenness of the narrative - at times very exciting, at other ti [...]

    2. This was a very comprehensive account of the tea boycotts that happened all over the country, not just Boston. It focuses on the economics at first, and then getting into the revolution/Sons of Liberty, however, it ignores the ties that Sam Adams may have had to black market tea smugglers. I enjoyed it, and it would be a good compliment to a US History course text, especially with all of the bold visuals.My favorite quote: "All through the colonies, tea was no longer drunk. Coffee was the patrio [...]

    3. Reading about the tea parties outside of Boston isn't surprising (& makes perfect sense to have happened), but what IS surprising is how this is something I never learned in any history class. A well-designed book with a solid narrative arc, this should appeal to fans of colonial history, of rebellions, and, of course, the Boston Tea Party. Moss does a good job noting that those who had the privilege to take part in these acts of dissent were white, privileged men, but the one thing she brus [...]

    4. Reviewed by Abigail StevensThe Boston Tea Party marks a monumental declaration of the American desire to be independent from rule and taxation under England’s law. Author Marissa Moss writes a children’s historical book which highlights a critical point which is rarely portrayed in schools, historical movies and anything else about this event. “America’s Tea Parties: Not One But Four!” explains that while the Boston Tea Party may have been the loudest, it wasn’t the only one. You can [...]

    5. Another quality book published by Abrams and written by Marissa Moss. Marissa Moss has expanded my understanding of the Tea Party and its importance for the colonists as a rallying point against British tyranny and FOR American solidarity. It is amazing to think that in a time when news traveled by horseback, the colonies could join together so cohesively. In the author's notes, Moss puts the tea parties in a larger historical context and draws parallels between this and the choices we each make [...]

    6. Everyone knows about the Boston Tea Party, but I am sure I am not alone in not knowing about the other three tea parties. This book explores what was going on in America and Britain leading up to the tea parties. It also looks at how each of the colonies reacted to the tea tax and how they decided on dumping the tea in the harbors. There is a lot of detail in this book that made it fascinating.

    7. A concise, detailed, enlightening account of one of the most important events in American Revolutionary war history. A movement that spread down the eastern seacoast from Boston to New York to Philadelphia and eventually to Charleston. Let the British drink tea, Americans drink coffee!

    8. I've been a history nerd all my life (and a history major), but Marissa Moss just taught me plenty of things I didn't know. LOVE it when that happens.

    9. Excellent look at American history - written in a conversational tone, using photos of original documents as illustrations and including quotes from primary sources in several places.

    10. It was interesting to read how Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Charleston were intertwined in their response to the Tea Act.
