Following the passage of the Stamp Act of 1765, Hugh Kenrick attends the Stamp Act Congress in New York while Jack Frake forms a local chapter of the Sons of Liberty. After they foil a plan to smuggle the stamps into the colony, Dogmael Jones debates repeal with his allies in British Parliament, earning himself more enemies. Through these vividly drawn characters and events, Sparrowhawk V: Revolution continues the story of resistance to the Stamp Act, the true beginning of the American Revolution.
