OBSERVATIONS ON THE ACT OF PARLIAMENT COMMONLY CALLED THE BOSTON PORT-BILL; WITH THOUGHTS ON CIVIL SOCIETY AND STANDING ARMIES BY JOSIAH QUINCY

Publication Date: 1774

First Edition. Josiah Quincy was Harvard-educated lawyer who acted as John Adams' co-counsel in defending the soldiers involved in the Boston Massacre. He was a patriot and a powerful orator and essayist who spoke out forcefully against British oppression in the American colonies. In this important work that helped spark the American Revolution, Quincy effectively protested the Intolerable Acts, and he urgently and soaringly exhorted his fellow Americans to rebel against the British and to fight for independence. #1335
