The Paul Revere House located at 19 N Square, Boston  –   Just after the conclusion of the French and Indian War, the Parliament of Great Britain passed a series of policies intended to reshape its American empire. Colonial Boston already had a history of antagonistic dealings with imperial officials, and the townspeople reacted violently in response to the Stamp Act of 1765. Paul Revere belonged to a waterfront community that mobilized a strong coalition against the Stamp Act. Professor Benjamin L.
