Mark your calendar for Saturday, August 13, 2016 when free sessions of the game will be offered at 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., or 3:00 p.m. At 4:00 p.m., the game will culminate with a reenactment of the Stamp Act Riots. And new this year is the opportunity to experience an 18th-century marketplace. Starting just before 1:00 p.m., the plaza beside the Old State House will be transformed into a marketplace, giving our visitors the chance to talk with living historians about the many industries that made 18th-century Boston tick.
To participate in the Stamp Act Riot reenactment, meet at the corner of Washington Street and Winter Street (next to the Downtown Crossing T Station) and join historic reenactors in period costume in a raucous march through the streets of Boston to the Old State House to protest the coming Stamp Act. Can the stamp distributor be compelled to resign his post?
We hope you will join us for a full day of activities on August 13! Please leave any questions in the comments.
