America’s History of Armed Tax Revolts — Can It Happen Again?

The Boston Tea Party

What is being taught about history in the classroom and what really happened is two different things. We hear about the history of when the people revolt, we hear about protest and marches. We hear about the calls for civil disobedience from various activists. Sometimes they work making changes needed. Other times, they are not enough to go the distance to correct injustices. We as Americans are rich in history of armed tax revolts, it is just never talked about anymore in history classes.
