102 Fort Rd. : 102 Fort Rd., Ticonderoga, NY 12883
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
The Fort Ticonderoga Author Series features presentations by authors of books related to Fort Ticonderogas history.
Seized with the Temper of the Times tells the story of the Stamp Act crisis and the Regulator Rebellion, two under examined political rebellions from the decade prior to the American Revolution. The questions about the intersecting roles of local and imperial/federal interests and identities raised by these movements remained central to the evolution of political thought in Rhode Island and North Carolina. Both colonies had long histories of challenges to their autonomy and their residents embraced the coming revolution before many of their counterparts, but they would also be reluctant participants in the rising union envisioned by the framers of the Constitution.
Abby Chandler is Associate Professor of Early American History at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. She has published articles on political movements in eighteenth-century British North America in Early American Studies, Protest in the Long Eighteenth Century, and the North Carolina Historical Review.
