Tea Party stirs support in Harford

June 12, 2005

A mass meeting of Harford citizens convened on June 11, 1774. It was seven months after the Boston Tea Party, and a resolution was passed pledging support and aid to the people of Boston, who had been deprived of the means of procuring subsistence by an act to block Boston's port, imposed by the British government in response to the Tea Party.

A further resolution expressed the willingness of Harford residents to join in an association with other counties of the province to oppose the importation of any kind of produce or merchandise from Great Britain.
