Boston Tea Party Event

Gary Lane asked me to pass along information regarding an event to be held this Saturday, December 16th at Green-Wood Cemetery in commemoration of the 250th Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. 

Green-Wood Cemetery is the final resting place of Patriot Ebenezer Stevens, the only Boston Tea Party participant interred in NYC. 

The start time is 3 PM.

This event has been highlighted recently in the New York Times due to the unique nature of a Boston Tea Party celebration in NYC. 

It's a free event open to the public and details are below. Please come if you are interested.
