April 19, 2010
Today we commemorate the 235th anniversary of the stand taken by our forefathers at Lexington green and Concord bridge on April 19, 1775. The Jamie Kelso Show today follows the trail from the Boston Tea Party of Dec. 16, 1753 to the Tea Parties of April 15, 2010. The notice posted in Boston by Patriots in Dec. 1753 before the first Tea Party seems to have lasting meaning: “Brethren, and Fellow Citizens! You may depend, that those odious Miscreants and detestable Tools…those Traitors to their Country who are doing every Thing to Murder and destroy all that shall stand in the Way of their private Interest are determined to come and reside again in the Town of Boston. I therefore give you this early Notice, that you may hold yourselves in Readiness, on the shortest Notice, to give them such Reception as such vile Ingrates deserve. Signed, Joyce, jun., Chairman of the Committee for Tarring and Feathering.”
