We are just about five days away from the 2011 edition of the Greenwich Tea Burning Project. The rooms are booked, the van is rented, and I think they are ready for us at the Lummis Library in historic Greenwich, New Jersey.
I will be leading a team of four students and former students to Greenwich to continue our work on how the past has been remembered there. We are using the 1774 event known as the “Greenwich Tea Burning” as a window into the history and memory of this fascinating community on the Cohansey River. We are funded this year by a generous grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission.
Stay tuned to The Way of Improvement Leads Home for regular updates starting Monday, June 27th.
