After a brilliant warm day in the Kitty Hawk, NC area, we woke to a gray overcast day with a few sprinkles. Today we are heading to Edenton, NC, the first permanent settlement in NC and location of the Edenton Tea Party. Yes a tea party, but nothing like our current Tea Party. This tea party was: 1 – organized and carried out by the WOMEN of Edenton; 2 – did not include dumping tea into the harbor, but rather a boycott of East India Tea; 3- it was led by the wife of the British Tax Agent in Edenton.
We took a tour through the streets of Edenton visiting historical buildings and learning about the early history of Edenton. Although the day was cloudy and breezy, the Dynamic Duo and their sidekick braved the elements for an interesting run down memory lane. Edenton continues to thrive and should be a stop for early American history buffs.
