On the Eve of the American Revolution, leaders gathered in each of the Colonies, debated the pros and cons of rebelling against King and Parliament, and planned resistance against British troops. Much of that gathering occurred in taverns in the larger towns. And the gatherings in some taverns proclaimed allegiance to the King, while those in others demanded Independence. Archeological excavations in such Chesapeake town sites as Londontown, Port Tobacco, and Joppa reveal what these towns were like and may begin to identify the allegiances of tavern patrons. This illustrated presentation explores what archeology tells us about town life on the Eve of the Revolution.
