The Peggy Stewart 250 Committee is a collaboration of nonprofit organizations that is actively planning for the commemoration of the 250th Anniversary of the burning of the Brig Peggy Street in Annapolis, Maryland. Our goal is to recognize this seminal Maryland event in the history of our republic. We may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Brig Peggy Stewart was a Maryland cargo vessel burned on October 19, 1774, in Annapolis as a punishment for contravening the boycott on tea imports which had been imposed in retaliation for the British occupation of Boston following the Boston Tea Party. This event became known as the "Annapolis Tea Party".
