Georgia Gazette, November 21, 1765

The November 21, 1765, issue of the Georgia Gazette is particularly interesting because it was the last edition to be published until the repeal of the Stamp Act. This fact is noted in the margins of the paper. The opening article is a reprint of a speech given in the Massachusetts General Assembly in response to a speech given by Governor Bernard, the royal governor of Massachusetts. The speech is a wonderful introduction to the general grievances of the colonists against the British crown in the years leading up to the American Revolution. You can read Governor Bernard’s speech on the Internet Archive.
