Many people have been citing the current riots and looting as the same acts of the Boston Tea Party. I am just wondering how the museum feels about this analogy?

The History at Home series is excellent. It makes e want to return to the ship as soon as the cover-19 is over.

This little building here in Rotherham Yorkshire England is called Boston Castle. It was built to commemorate the Boston Tea Party. The man who paid for it was Rotherham’s solider and politician Thomas Howard Earl of Effingham. Thomas refused to go and fight the colonists. He is remembered today in the names of two cities in the USA and two counties called Effingham. The US Navy has had three ships named Effingham. Another local monument is the Victory Arch built at Parlington Hall near Leeds in 1783 to celebrate American freedom. The Patriot movement started as a branch of the British Whig Party in 1725. They were opposed by the ruling Tory Party. The story of the British Patriots needs to be told, along with that of American Tories.
I keep forgetting to share this photo with you folks, from that very foggy afternoon a couple weeks back. It's like a ghost ship :)
I had to share …..my son Jacob Stearns birthday is Dec 16th and we are direct descendants of Phineas Stearns who participated in the historic event! We were there this summer and had to share this pics....taken Aug 6th 2019
Had so much fun learning about so many important people in our history at the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museums a couple months back while visiting Boston that I could not wait to come back and learn more and experience Tavern Nights. There stories are so important and they are truly inspiring individuals that we can all learn from and look up to. Thank you to the Cast of the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museums. Ms Sally Bass, Mr. Paul Revere, Mrs. Rachel Revere and Ms Dolly. You all are so kind and wonderful. And so extremely talented and phenomenal. I had the most fun and the best time during the Tour and during Tavern Nights and was the happiest because of it all. I greatly appreciate you all so much and for all the hard work that you put into Tavern Nights and these tours for us everyday. So grateful and blessed. Thank you for everything!! Until next time. Godspeed. Huzzah sweet friends!! 🧡💚🍁🍂
