Thanks Greenwich NJ residents of 1774

Took a ride on this July 4th to a hot bed of activity for US independence in 1774 -- Greenwich, New Jersey.  It is spelled like the place in Great Britain but pronounced "green" "witch".    There was a tea party there to protest the tea tax but it involved burning the tea rather than dumping into a harbor.  The official story is here

So, hats off and thanks for whatever contribution people living in that time made towards achieving independence for the United States of America.  I owe you each one.
