The data used in the map above is drawn from the listing of 2009 and 2010 Tea Party rallies based on press accounts available on Wikipedia. The list is far from complete, but it does provide an initial sketch of Tea Party activity. Where no size estimate was ascertainable, a "1" was placed in the database merely to mark location. We hope to add to this database over time to fill in the picture more completely. If you have first-hand accounts or press clippings of Tea Party events in your community, please contact us.
