BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Tea Party, the tax protest that sparked the American Revolution, is coming to life.

Re-enactors will gather in Boston on Monday to tell the story of the iconic public protest on the 240th anniversary to the day of the original event.

The re-enactment is scheduled to start with a debate featuring Samuel Adams, John Hancock and Paul Revere at the Old South Meeting House, the hall where colonists gathered to protest British rule and unfair taxation in 1773.

The public is then invited to join in a procession from the Old South Meeting House to the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum on the waterfront where the tea will be tossed into the harbor.

Events start at 6:30 p.m. and are expected to last about two hours.
