During the American Revolution, patriot men wantonly destroyed tea to make a statement to the British. Patriot women also used tea to communicate with the British—but in a more subtle fashion. In celebration of Women’s History Month, Suzanne Adair, author of an award-winning mystery series set during the American Revolution in North Carolina, discusses how ladies’ tea parties in the Old North State underscored the ways that women of the Revolution controlled the economy and blindsided the British. Join us for snacks and—of course—tea!
