Friday, 29 September 2023 – Marking of John Swan’s Grave at Père Lachaise Cemetery

Père Lachaise Cemetery, 16 rue du Repos – Paris 20e

10:30 am

Plan to arrive 20 minutes early, and bring the attached map with you – the cemetery is huge! 

Spouses, family and friends are cordially invited to attend.

The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum association, in partnership with other associations including Revolution 250, will mark the location of the grave of James Swan (1754-1831). This is the 134th plaque commemorating the Boston Tea Party, and the first to be placed in Europe. This initiative is part of the commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party (16 December 1773), a major event in American history in which James Swan took part.
