973.3115: Cummins, Joseph. Ten Tea Parties: Patriotic Protests that History Forgot. Philadelphia: Quirk Books, 2012. 214 pp. ISBN 978-1-59474-560-7.
You could fill whole libraries with book in DDC section 973, because that’s where you class books on the “general history of the United States.” The first subsections of 973 are devoted to initial discovery, colonization, and revolution (973.1, 973.2, and 973.3, respectively), but the remainder of the section gets divided into distinct historical periods using presidential administrations as milestones. 973.4 covers Washington through Jefferson, 973.5 is Madison through Tyler, 973.6 is Polk through Buchanan, and so on (Lincoln’s tenure gets his subsection at 973.7).
The book I chose for 973 has a uniquely specific call number: 973.3115. 973.3 is the place for books on the revolution, 973.311 deals with individual political causes of the revolution, 973.3115 is the specific British tax on tea imports.
