A very detailed account of the events surrounding the Stamp Act. Covers reactions from various colonies, and reaction in England. Quite readable. ( )

An excellent, and very readable account of the years surrounding the Stamp Act. Offers both American and British perspectives, and profiles of some of the lesser-known characters in the events. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
For E.M.M.
First words
The place was something out of a fairy tale, a ghost town in the wilderness, empty houses lining the street on one side, savage plants creeping toward them to recover their domain, and on the other side -- an enchanted castle, where a gentleman lived with his wife and her young sister.
