|History of "Young Ladies In Town"|
|"This song first appeared in the Boston Newsletter in 1769. The song was an appeal to American women to support the boycott of British textiles.|
The song was a result of the Townshend Acts of 1767, which decreed that Americans pay duty on British lead paint, glass and tea. In response, the Americans called for a boycott of British goods, in hope it would result in the repeal of the acts. The boycott lasted for two years and resulted in 'staggering losses on British trade.'"
