Taxes, Riots and Revolution

No Taxation Without Representation! Commemorate the 250th Anniversary of the repeal of the Stamp Act with Boston By Foot! This special walking tour will visit the sites related to the 1765 Stamp Act protest riots that gave birth to the American Revolution.

Beginning with an overview of the Stamp Act, including Parliament’s reasons for the tax and the colonists’ objections to it, this tour will wind its way though Boston’s Revolutionary Era historic sites. From the Boston Common you will make your way to the Granary Burying Ground-- the final resting place of Patriots such as Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock-- through the downtown area and into the North End neighborhood as your guide reveals how the Stamp Act crisis escalated to street violence and ultimately led to the American Revolution.

This tour is offered in connection with Revolution 250's commemoration of the 250th anniversary of events in Boston that led to the American Revolution.
