The Boston Tea Party stands as one of the most iconic nonviolent protests in American history. Its gathering ground, the Old South Meeting House, has played an important role in American history. In the years leading to the American Revolution, thousands of colonists assembled at Old South Meeting House to challenge British rule, most famously to protest the Boston Massacre and the tea tax. Each December, Old South Meeting House and the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum recreate this most famous grassroots protest--the Boston Tea Party-- from fiery debate to salt water tea in an annual Reenactment.
