Overview

American Tempest: How the Boston Tea Party Sparked a Revolution by Harlow Giles Unger

On December 16, 1773, an estimated seven dozen men dumped roughly £10,000 worth of tea in Boston Harbor. This symbolic act unleashed a social, political, and economic firestorm throughout the colonies. Combining stellar scholarship with action-packed history, American Tempest reveals the truth behind the legendary event and examines its lasting consequence—the birth of an independent America.
