Lecture: The Thatched House Petition

A lecture on Georgian politics between the American Colonies and Britain


Catherine Leitch, author of “Discovering American History in England” will give a talk on the Thatched House Petition, signed in March 1774 by 29 American colonials who lived in London at the time, including Benjamin Franklin. It was sent to King George III to protest the Coercive Acts being considered by Parliament as a response to the Boston Tea Party. The stories of these men and what happened to them illustrate the varied web of relationships American colonials had with England.
