Newport History Walking Tours: Stamp Act

Posted by NewportHistory

In August 1765, a group of Newporters organized a riot that turned leading citizens against each other and set Rhode Island on a path to rebellion against Great Britain. This tour explores what happened on those fateful summer days and offers a glimpse into life in colonial Newport on the eve of revolution. Presented by a guide wearing authentic historical clothing.
