250th Anniversary Commemoration of the Repudiation Act

Attached is a MEDIA ALERT for Calendar Listings for the 250th Anniversary Commemoration of The Repudiation Act, the act of defiance by "Twelve Immortal Justices" of the Frederick County Court, effectively refusing to discharge The Stamp Act imposed on the Colonies by Great Britain' King George II.  On November 23, 1765 these justices were the first to repudiate the onerous "taxation without representation" ("Duties On American Colonies Act 1765"), a decade before "the shot heard 'round the world" at the "rude bridge that arched the flood" in Lexington, Massachusetts.

 

The 250th Anniversary Commemoration of The Repudiation Act , to be conducted on Saturday, November 21, 2015is being organized by the local chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Sons of the American Revolution.

Event Date: 

Saturday, November 21, 2015 - 12:00 to 15:00
