Find Freedom on Broadway

America’s freedom began on Broadway. Before the Boston Tea Party, there was the Newport Stamp Act Riot of 1765. Per the news of the day, “the chief contrivers…sent into the street strong Drink in plenty with Cheshire cheese and other provocatives to…riot.” See where it happened at the Old Colony House, and the Wanton Lyman Hazard House. Then get your own good time going on Broadway.
