The Coming of the American Revolution - The Boston Tea Party - (MP3 Download)
What happened in Colonial America to sow the seeds of revolution? The British won the French and Indian War in 1763. It was a popular victory in the colonies and should have guaranteed British control of North America. What went wrong? How could a tax of a couple cents on sugar, which no one paid anyway, stir so much anger? What was The Stamp Act and how did it impact relations between the Americans and the mother country? And what was the point of dumping all that tea into Boston Harbor? How did that happen? The answers to these questions reveal facts which changed the world. This is the beginning of the story of the Greatest Nation on God's Green Earth!

From the first time I had heard the History of Thanksgiving program on your radio show many years ago, I wanted to hear more. I waited every Thanksgiving to listen to it again. A few months ago, I learned from listening to the radio show, that I could actually purchase the history programs from your website. I was excited and wanted to purchase all of them. It is a big investment for me, so I put it off. I thought I would purchase a program here and there. I saw the history of Thanksgiving and Christmas programs on your website and purchased them both. I listened to them over and over for several days, This week I heard about the free download of the first part of the revolution series, "The Coming of the American Revolution". I downloaded it as soon as I could. I have listened to it a few times. I absolutely love it! It is as amazing as the holiday programs. You present the programs with such excitement and such detail, that they really come to life. I purchased a few more right after I downloaded the first program. I listened to them all day today. I have always enjoyed history, but you have added a whole new dimension, by reading the personal accounts and eyewitness accounts of people on both sides. You have brought a whole new feeling about it that I had never experienced before. It is not only educational, It is also very moving. Thank you for that Michael. I DO feel very proud of my heritage as an American. I look forward to listening to more of your amazing programs. I also look forward to reading your new book. I look forward to listening to the Thanksgiving program this week. It will be a new tradition at my home. Thank you again.

Michael Medved engages the listener in a way that few can. He transports you into the story and not only familiarizes you with the historical interest and fact but you also feel as though you really know the key characters. I feel as though I have met Charles Townshend and John Adams. Excellent. Highly recommended.

I am a homeschool teacher/parent. We are covering the revolution in the next few months. I wanted a primer for the kids and a good brushup for me. The 1st MP3 of the series was just what the doctor ordered. The first section alone gave me a half dozen ideas for lessons. I plan to slowly order the whole series. Thank you!
