mar 22, 1765 - The Stamp Act passed

Description:

The Stamp act angered the colonists especially because the sugar act was passed just the year before. The reasoning behind the Stamp Act was because the British wanted to raise money from the colonies for the American armies that were stationed at the time. They made stamps that were to be purchased and placed on items. These stamps had to be placed on things from documents, deeds, licenses, etc. Americans found this unjust and this raised the slogan "No Taxation Without Representation." When colonists started rebelling officials were sent to put them into place. This backfired on the British, the officials were tarred and feathered. Hot tar was poured on the officials and they were covered in feathers, it was humiliating.
