The Stamp Act
1) The Stamp Act was passed by the British Parliament on March 22, 1765.

2) It required the colonists to pay tax on every printed paper. Items that were taxed: ships' papers, legal documents, licenses, newspapers, other publications, and playing cards

3) The money collected by the Stamp Act was used to pay for the costs of defending the American frontier during the French and Indian War.

4) The tax put on items was relatively small, but what seemed to upset the colonists was how the act was passed.
The Stamp Act Continued
5) The colonists believed that only their elected representatives were allowed to pass taxes, and since they did not elect members in Parliament, Britain had no right to tax the colonies.

6) They thought that if the act was passed without resistance, there would be far more troublesome taxation in the future.

7) Riots broke out in Boston, New York City, Newport, and Charleston.

8) Many people claimed, "No taxation, without representation!"
The Sons and Daughters of Liberty
1) To protest against the British policies, angry colonists formed the Sons and Daughters of Liberty.

2) The Sons of Liberty made a mess in the homes of British officials and sent threats to people who continued to buy British goods.

3) The Daughters of Liberty paraded, signed petitions, and organized boycotts of fine British cloth.
