Boston Tea Party Participants Honored With Grave Markers


BOSTON (AP) -- The Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum and the city of Boston have joined forces to place commemorative markers at the graves of those who participated in the Dec. 16, 1773 protest. 

The markers were Tuesday at about 70 sites in four Boston cemeteries. This year is the 245th anniversary of the protest during which colonists protesting taxation without representation threw British tea into Boston Harbor, considered a pivotal event that led to the American Revolution.
