Joshua coined the term “Boston Tea Party” during an interview in the 1820’s that was printed in “The Western Review” published at Cincinnati, Ohio.  The extraordinary event he spoke of is now recognized as one of the pivotal occurrences of the struggle for independence from Great Britain.  This is very important to recall as we approach the 250th Anniversary of the founding of our country.

We will have a special guest John Turley, VPG to attend the event.
