Boston Tea Party, 1773
It was one of the most significant protest during the American Independence. It started when a group of colonists dressed up as native americans and went to the Boston Harbor and threw 342 chests of Indian Tea into the sea to protest.
Finally, Britain punished those colonists in Massachusetts and closed Boston's port until all the tea was paid.
After this protest, the Independence war was proclaimed two years later until 1783

Charlie's Freedom Trail #3: Elijah Miller House, North White Plains. Washington's headquarters for the latter part of the Battle of White Plains in 1776, then again in 1778 and 1781. Ann Miller lost both sons and her husband in the war - she nursed wounded soldiers and welcomed Continental commanders throughout the years of the war for independence. The Miller House is closed for renovations but Charlie was amazed to stand under the branches of the same Sycamore tree that Washington did! #americanrevolution #charliesfreedomtrail #charlie #americanindependence #elijahmillerhouse #nyheritage #whiteplains #purchaseelementaryschool #georgewashington
Re-entry into Monday was slow this morning after four days of exploring beautiful (but chilly!) Revolutionary Virginia. I fully expected to acquire atleast two of these in @colonialwmsburg, I even suggested it! But nope. 🤦🏼‍♀️🎩 #beaniebabies

Old State House. One of the centre-points of the US struggle for independence. Love the American style of old buildings preserved in enclaves of modern architecture #oldstatehouse #americanindependence #boston #ma #touristing #bostonmassacre #birthofasuperpower #usa

Charlie's Freedom Trail #2: Jacob Purdy House. Washington's headquarters during 1778 and possibly also the earlier battle at White Plains October 28-31, 1776. In that earlier battle, the British did run Washington and his ragtag militia off Chatterton Hill, with the help of Hessian dragoons and artillery forces, causing Washington to retreat to New Jersey. But the British plan had been to destroy the American army and end the war altogether right then which they could have done if they chased Washington. Instead, General Howe returned to York Island (Manhattan), allowing Washington to regroup and setting up the Battke of Trenton. Charlie is teaching me so much. Scroll through for more pics of Charlie "standing in the same place George Washington was thinking". #charlie #charliesfreedomtrail #americanrevolution #americanindependence #nyheritage #whiteplains #jacobpurdyhouse #georgewashington #revolutionarywar #whatwouldgeorgedo

Charlie's Freedom Trail #1: The Battle of White Plains. Charlie just read the book "I Survived the American Revolutionary War". Now soaking up everything about American Independence has turned into a 4th grade obsession. The radical, idealistic fight for freedom against a much more powerful, oppressive foe -- This is a story worth remembering and worth telling to the next generation right now. So this weekend, we started down Charlie's Freedom Trail. First stop: the Battle of White Plains, where General George Washington pulled off one of the Continental Army's first retreats that he then turned into an advantage. Engage and Retreat, repeat. This became a winning strategy. #charliesfreedomtrail #americanrevolution #battleofwhiteplains #revolution #americanindependence #history #isurvived #charlie #georgewashington #nyheritage
