Leedstown Marker, JT-15

Here at the then thriving port of Leedstown on February 27, 1766, ten years before the Declaration of Independence, the Leedstown Resolutions (or Westmoreland Association) were drawn. This association, a protest against the Stamp Act and a pledge of mutual aid in event of its execution, was signed by 115 men from Westmoreland and surrounding counties.
