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.
