By Pat Greenhouse/Globe Staff - Taking off from Jeffries Yacht Club, in East Boston, Christian Ilsley pilots his pumpkin boat around Boston Harbor for about an hour Sunday morning. It was built from his giant pumpkin, scrap wood, 100 feet of rope, 44 screws, a yacht bumper, dock foam and powered by a Suzuki Four Stroke 4HP motor. Rob Cortes, his engineer, said it took “a few drinks and six hours to construct.” #pumpkin#pumpkinboat#boston#bostonharbor

Town crier keeping the womenfolk and mob informed on the conversations within.
Just a few of the outstanding loyalists and daughters of liberty debating their ideals!
I had an incredible American experience tonight! Tonight I marched in the 244th Anniversary Boston Tea Party re-enactment. December 16th, 1773 kickstarted the American Revolution as we protested by rejecting a shipment of tea. 🇺🇸
I was initially disappointed that the ticketed seats were sold out, but I actually had a much better time outside. You see, women weren't allowed in the meeting house to discuss the plan for the shipment but they weren't without opinions. They debated amongst themselves in the cold December air, representing diverse ages, families, reputations, and stances.💬❄🗨The actors tonight spoke amongst the crowds and offered banter and debate in between updates from the town crier. 🗣They were fabulous women with lovely costumes (complete with muffs)! Lots of booing and hissing and foot-stomping! HEAR, HEAR!
Then we marched the streets of Boston, stopping traffic, to the drum and fife brigade 🎶 all the way to Boston Harbor where we watched them turn the harbor into a teapot one crate at a time. ⛵Dramatic injury, narration, and an oath amongst the men and countrymen (that's the crowd) to protect the identities of those who committed treason in defiance of tyranny. HUZZAH!✊
It was amazing.
The #SonsofLiberty and the #Boston#TeaParty
In 1771, a group of colonists protest thirteen years of increasing #British oppression, by attacking merchant ships in #BostonHarbor . In retaliation, the British close the port, and inflict even harsher penalties.
This famed act of #American colonial defiance served as a protest against taxation. Seeking to boost the troubled #EastIndiaCompany , British #Parliament adjusted import duties with the passage of the Tea Act in 1773. While consignees in #Charleston , #New York, and #Philadelphia rejected tea shipments, merchants in Boston refused to concede to #Patriot pressure. On the night of December 16, 1773, #SamuelAdams and the Sons of Liberty boarded three ships in the Boston harbor and threw 342 chests of tea overboard. This resulted in the passage of the punitive Coercive Acts in 1774 and pushed the two sides closer to war.
This action, part of a wave of resistance throughout the colonies, had its origin in Parliament’s effort to rescue the financially weakened East India Company so as to continue benefiting from the company’s valuable position in India. The Tea Act (May 10, 1773) adjusted import duties in such a way that the company could undersell even smugglers in the colonies. The company selected consignees in Boston, New York, Charleston, and Philadelphia, and 500,000 pounds of tea were shipped across the Atlantic in September.
