Wellesley Historical Society virtual event: Drinking Alongside Boston’s Colonial Rebels
October 6, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Bostonians in the eighteenth century drank a lot of beer, rum, cider, and wine, but did you know that their imbibing influenced the American Revolution? Join historian Brooke Barbier to learn about the role alcohol played in Boston’s resistance and rebellion of the 1760s and 1770s. She’ll be discussing brawls and streets mobs fueled by both anger towards British officials and alcohol. We recommend grabbing your favorite autumn beer or cider and drinking alongside colonial Boston’s rowdiest residents.
