The National Parks of Boston 2018 Speaker Series kicks off at the Bunker Hill Museum on March 15 from 7-8 p.m. with a presentation by National Park Service Ranger Curtis White, who will discuss how the attempted collection of taxes and duties by British customs officials in colonial Boston and Salem acted as a prelude to the American Revolution.

“Customs Enforcement in Massachusetts: Prelude to War 1760-1775,” will also highlight other historic events in Boston, including the Boston Tea Party, the Navigation Acts, and the Stamp Act, and will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

The event is free and open to the public and is offered in cooperation with Revolution 250, an organization exploring the history of the American Revolution, leading up to its 250th anniversary in 2026, and the ways that this story still resonates in society today.
