Fire at the Tea Party Museum
Boston.com
Flames and smoke billowed high into the clear blue sky as the Federal Reserve Bank building loomed in the background. The museum commemorates the events of Dec. 17, 1773, when a group of revolutionaries raided three ships at Griffin’s Wharf. The men, disguised as Mohawk Indians, dumped 342 crates of British tea into Boston Harbor to protest a tax.
