Exploring the Stamp Act: Hangings in Effigy, Crowd Actions, and Funerals for “Liberty”

What were the long-term consequences of the crisis?  This episode is important for what happened--a broad mobilization of Bostonians, who demolished property and forced the resignation of Crown officials--for how the British government reacted--by rescinding the Stamp Act--and for the way Bostonians would remember these events. Professor Robert J. Allison of Suffolk University, will discuss the overall significance of the Stamp Act Crisis, how it affected all classes of people in different ways, and how it has been viewed in succeeding centuries. This series is made possible by a grant from the Lowell Institute.
