Narrator Paul O'Shaughnessy of Lexington leads the crowd in celebration after a group of historic reenactors dumped tea into Boston Harbor Sunday night at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum. The event was held to celebrate the 239th anniversary of the event that sparked the American Revolution. A large audience followed the reenactors from the Old South Meeting House to the harbor, where the Tea Party was reenacted aboard the Beaver II, Gloucester shipwright Leon Poindexter's replica of the original merchant ship that was raided on Dec. 16, 1773.
