Cam Edwards speaks with Journalist and Historian Harlow Giles Unger about Unger's book American Tempest: How the Boston Tea Party Sparked a Revolution. Unger explains that back in the day, the 15,000 Bostonians of the world were the roughest bunch in the country with neighbor pitted against neighbor. He argues that some of the more romantic "history book" notions about the Tea Party are not accurate. Originally aired 3/22/2011.
