Snydacker describes the life of Newport Tory, Martin Howard, Jr., who was a full-fledged ideologue and saw the increasing tensions between colony and mother-country in the theoretical terms of law and politics. Howard was an equally successful lawyer and politician who held a number of highly respected offices in town. However, his downfall came in 1765, as a result of the Stamp Act crisis of that year
