A Colonial Tavern is what
I chose for my December CupboardScape.
Did you know that colonial taverns (bars)
helped shaped American history
as we know today?
Taverns were not just
a place to consume alcohol.
These establishments were a meeting
place for men of the day.
Taverns were also a place
to collect and deliver mail from overseas.
They were also a rest over place
for weary travelers to get a meal and bed.
Taverns also became assemblies
for meetings and courts.
It was a tavern which played a role
in the start of the Revolutionary War.
The headquarters of the Revolutionary War
began at the Green Dragon Tavern
where the Sons of Liberty first plotted
out the Boston Tea Party.
The Freemasons held their meeting
at a tavern in Philadelphia called
This tavern was also used by
Benjamin Franklin to recruit
for the Pennsylvania militia.
This same tavern was where
the United States Marine Corp
was formed in 1775.
Did you all notice my new bunny?
Folks who were at our Christmas party
last Saturday thought it was
a real stuffed rabbit.
Guess I did a good job at creating it. :-)
Colonial Tavern Blessings To All!
