J.L. Bell reports on a recreation in Lexington this Saturday of the Burning of the Tea - a protest on the town common three days before the better known Boston Tea Party.
Rev. Peter Meek will give voice to Rev. Jonas Clarke's powerful 1773 public resolution. Citizens are welcome to join re-enactors from the Lexington Minutemen in stoking the bonfire (built by Lexington Boy Scouts) with tea (supplied by Peet's Coffee and Tea) to protest Parliament's "wicked" policies. The William Diamond Fife and Drum Corps will supply a stirring live soundtrack. A musket salute from the Lexington Minutemen will provide the finale, and all will then be invited inside Munroe Tavern for coffee and hot chocolateâ€”but absolutely no tea!
