The Edenton Tea Party was a very noteworthy protest because
it was actually a protest organized entirely by women, who promised to honor all boycotts of British goods until the Tea Act was repealed.
it led to the destruction of 25,000 pounds of tea, and in response, England closed down the port of Philadelphia.
it led to 10,000 soldiers being stationed in Boston.
it involved Rhode Islanders who burned a British ship in broad daylight, and managed to carry out the attack without anyone getting arrested for doing so.
it was the second time a majority of colonies sent representatives to New York to create a protest petition.
