What began on the banks of the Cape Fear River helped paved the Road Revolution. Travel back to the winter of 1766 at Brunswick Town and Fort Anderson.

Learn how the events that occurred in the Colonial Cape Fear helped sow the seeds of discontent and pave the way for the American Revolution as living history interpreters demonstrate trades and how the dreaded Stamp Act affected their livelihood. Talk with sailors, learn the blacksmith's trade, and listen to lectures on how the events of the 1760s paved the way to revolution. Hands on activities for kids and interactives for the entire family.
