A walking tour of 1767 New York
from Curbed NY
The winter of 1767 was a difficult time to walk the streets of New York City as a British soldier. Though the War of Independence would not officially begin until the spring of 1775, tensions in colonial cities like Boston and New York were already running high. Two years earlier, the Stamp Act Protests had brought the city to the brink of bloodshed. New York's legislature had also refused to fund and implement the Quartering Act of 1765, which was designed to house and feed soldiers flooding into the city after the French and Indian War.
