A study of the Pitts, American allies in Parliament
[May 2, 2014] I was inspired to research the Pitt family contribution to early American history. I was impressed with several things. Pitt the Elder was a Whig and found that conservative link to Americans against unfair taxation, the Stamp Act, and quartering troops. Pitt the Younger was a fiscal conservative and yanked England from a pit of debt, saved the pound, and was against slavery. Both friends of America. Impressive for Brits at that time.
