Days of Change

Revolutionary | September 13, 2014

I’ve started watching “10 Things You Don’t Know About…” on H2, the History Channel spin-off. Tonight was about the Revolutionary War and I really didn’t know most of what they had to tell me. One thing I found interesting was the first fact, which was about the Boston Tea Party.

It turns out that the Sons of Liberty were about as popular with the establishment as the Tea Party is with the mainstream media. Dumping tea in the harbor was a criminal act and a massive destruction of property. Further, it made the colonists fearful of British reprisal. The British responded with even harsher laws that eventually turned the colonists against King George more than the Tea Party perpetrators. With history as a guide, the Tea Party may yet be known as the defenders of the Constitution.

  1. Interesting. I imagine most did fear reprisals, and of course they were correct. I wonder how many today will defy obama when he declares martial law and refusea to vacate the WH.
