Long Description:
Monument reads:
"In honor of the patriots of Cumberland Co. NJ who on the evening of December 22, 1774 burned British Tea near this site."

Taking a cue from fellow patriots in Boston, this less famous tea party had the same effect in Southern NJ. 4 patriots dressed as Indians boarded a ship in the nearby Cohansey River and burned the load of British tea slated for delivery to Philadelphia. The monument is now about a quarter mile inland from the river, and lists the names of the patriots on the sides.
Type of Memorial: Monument
