Description:

The Stamp Act was enacted by British Parliament to fund wartime efforts in the American colonies, and it struck at the heart and purse strings of the Colonists. Instated in November, 1765, it was repealed five months later due to overwhelming resistance. North Carolina, and in particular the Lower Cape Fear, played a unique role in the Stamp Act Resistance. Learn more about the events that helped shape this turning point in history with Jim McKee, Site Manager at Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson State Historic Site. Jim is a Southport native, and has previously worked for the North Carolina Maritime Museum and the National Park Service.
