A Colonial Family's Reaction to the Stamp Act -- September 17, 2015

Today I went to Good Shepherd School in Pacifica and talked to Junior High kids about "A Colonial Family's Reaction to the Stamp Act." They are participating in a DAR essay contest on the subject. I talked about the background of the French and Indian War and the Stamp Act.  I told them I couldn't talk about what people did about the Stamp Act, but I could give them a list of interesting names and terms that they could look up.  I gave them James Otis, Jr and boycott and Committees of Correspondence and things like those.  It was fun, and they asked good questions.  After, I was very tired.
