Author’s Talk - Quarters: The Accommodation of the British Army and the Coming of the American Revolution
Thu Sep 26, 6:30pm
Presented by: Anderson House & The American Revolution Institute
When Congress declared independence in 1776, it cited King George III “for quartering large bodies of armed troops among us.” In Quarters, John Gilbert McCurdy explores the social and political history behind this charge, offering the first authoritative account of the housing of British soldiers in America. Providing new interpretations and analysis of the Quartering Act of 1765, McCurdy sheds light on a misunderstood aspect of the American Revolution.
The talk will last approximately 45 minutes, followed by a book signing and refreshments. Copies of the book will be available to purchase at the event.
