In honor of the anniversary of the start of the American Revolution on April 19th, the new Boston Tea Party Ships Museum welcomes the arrival of the historically accurate vessel the Brig Beaver.

She will be returning to the waters where the Boston Tea Party, "the single most important event leading up to the American Revolution" occurred on the night of December 16, 1773.

The Beaver made the voyage from Gloucester where it received complete renovations at the Gloucester Marine Railways.
