Colonial View Of The Stamp Act
The colonists would create riots in the streets to scare the tax collectors into not collecting taxes anymore. Ordinary people sometimes used violence to
force leaders to do what they believed to be fair.The colonists and the British leaders had different views on the Stamp Act. The British did not like the
protests because the colonists were bringing harm to the towns."The hellish crew fell upon my house with the rage of devils."This shows that
Hutchinson thought that the people who were protesting were devils."Such ruins were never seen in America."This shows that Hutchinson thought that
the crowds were creating messes that were the worst in America. The colonial view of the Stamp Act was hatred. They they were mad at parliament for

Reflection On The Stamp Act Of 1765
Today, I sat down with my family at our home in Boston, and we had a very interesting conversation about the most recent actions of the British
Parliament that is hurting all of the colonists, their families, and communities that we live in. Of course, I am talking about the Stamp Act of 1765.
At first, I thought I was the only person in our family who paid any attention to the political events and unfair actions of good old mother England. I
was a little nervous about how our family was going to react when I told them that I had just signed up to be a member of the Sons of Liberty. My
family was very interested in what the Sons of Liberty were going to do to help the colonists in the fight against what all colonists see as unfair taxation

The colonist argued to the king that the representatives should be the only ones to tax the colonist. They thought it wasn't fair and started using the
phrase" taxation without representation". Which meant that the colonist wanted a say in whether the taxes should be balanced or not. In my opinion, I
believe that it wasn't fair and the British should let us have a say. Which everybody believes that too probably.
After the declaring of the stamp act, The Patriots formed a group of protesters known as the Sons of Liberty. Who fought for the other colonists. The
leader of these protesters were the one and only, Samuel Adams. These protesters used many the different methods, but the one that stood out was the
method of intimidation to get tax collectors to resign from their job. this method worked really well for the Sons of Liberty. This is one of the many
phenomenal reasons that the Sons of Liberty were an import role in the American revolution.
In the year of 1766, a group of protesters known as the Stamp Act congress started meeting in the great and wonderful City of New York City. The
dates of the meeting were the month of October 7 until October 23, 1765. In result of this act of the Stamp Act Congress, The British repealed on the
date of, March 18,1766. Which caused the act to have no more play on the colonists. Now the Americans have the freedom of the possession of paper

Essay On The Tax Stamp Act Of 1765
America from 1754 to 1763. After 1763, the British procured a nation debt of about 140 million pounds. Colonists were told to do their part in paying
of this debt therefore their administrative expenses rose from 70,000 to 350,000 pounds. When the Proclamation Line of 1763 prohibited colonists
from entering the land they fought for, they were enraged but these new and unfair payments only increased their bitterness. To enforce these payments,
George Greenville (Prime minister) reorganized the British Empire's messy political structures with a mercantilist focus. He then passed these two
acts. The Sugar Act of 1764 created a tax on sugar, molasses, wine, coffee, silks and other luxury items. This had such a great impact because of the
people's love for rum. However, a greater repercussion could be that of smuggling which was a result of such high taxation and the fact that the best
sugar grew within the French colonies. For this to find an end, taxes would need to decrease. The colonial economy lacked its needed support....show

This was to serve as reimbursement for the British military's protection of the colonies. What was taxed such as wills, bills, deeds, newspapers, and
even playing cards became too long of a list. In hopes for an end to these taxations, a stamp act resistance rose. Protests included the making of stamp
agents or tax collectors' effigies (look alike dummies) to be burned in the towns. This was successful only to an extent. The stamp act was repealed in
1766, but the government created the Declaratory Act which professed parliament's full authority to make laws, binding the colonies in whatever cases
they determine fit. The British government was now allowed to intercede

Stamp Act Assignment
The primary source document chosen for this assignment is a newspaper from the Pennsylvania Gazette. Stamp Act was commenced on November 1,
1765. The primary source was produced just six days after the commencement and gives an account of how the cities of Boston, New York, and
Philadelphia responded to the first accounts of Stamp Act distributors trying to collect dues. All three cities hanged the distributors names in effigy and
destroyed the distributors personal property in bonfires. In 1765, most colonists were still loyal subjects to the Crown, but the Act was seen as an
encroachment upon their personal liberties, namely the right to tax the colonists without the colonists having representation in the British Parliament.

Why Is The Stamp Act Unfair To The British
The Stamp Act It was the french and indian war, and it was that war that left the british in debt. But the british thought of a new way of collecting
money and it involved adding more money to the british's creations. therefore it was called the Stamp Act. the Stamp Act relied on the colonials to buy
the british's goods, but with a the british would make the colonists pay taxes with the stuff they bought from the british. The colonials started to realise
what the british have done and tried to everything in their "power" to stop it. In my opinion the stamp act was unfair towards the colonists because the
british made the colonists pay more for the stuff they usually bought from the british. And on top of that the colonists didn't

What Are The Effects Of The Stamp Act
In early spring of 1765, Prime Minister Grenville introduced the Stamp Act. As a "direct tax" on the colonists, the Stamp Act stipulated that "anyone
who used or purchased anything printed on paper had to buy a revenue stamp for it" and these included items such as newspapers, legal documents, and
playing cards. In a sense, the Stamp Act affected every level of society; landowners, merchants, printers, and sailors were all required to pay taxes for
the printed papers they used. The Stamp Act was not welcomed with open arms in the colonists because it raised constitutional issues that initiated the
first serious protests against British imperial policy. The colonists felt, compared to their counterparts in Britain, the British Parliament wasn't treating
them fairly. The British colonists in America felt deprived of the rights they enjoyed as British subjects such as the right to representation. Per the
unwritten British Constitution, "only representatives for whom British subjects voted could tax them". Although the British Parliament imposed taxes
and was the representative body of the colonists, the colonists did not have "actual" or "direct" representation in it. Proponents of the Stamp Act in the
British Parliament argue that...show more content...
However, the Stamp Act united the colonists in protest. "The Massachusetts Assembly sent letters to the other colonies, asking them to attend a
meeting, or congress, to discuss how to respond to the act". All the nine colonists said no to the act and protested under the slogan "no taxation without
representation". The Daughters of Liberty encouraged the locals to refuse buying British goods. They made their own tea from local herbs and berries.
The non–importation movement also ensured that no British goods were imported into the colonists thereby disrupting trade for British

Why Was The Stamp Act Important
The Stamp Act was a vital piece of legislation. It was already in force in England and was a good source of revenue for the Crown from the people.
The tax was working very well in England and if enforced successfully in the American colonies, it would provide the vital income needed to support
the army. After the Seven Years war, Great Britain had taken colonies from France on the continent. Therefore, it was paramount that a standing army
filled the void left by the French. These new colonies would be new sources of income to Britain, and, therefore, had to be secured at all costs. The
Stamp Act was a means that would justify the desired ends; i.e. increased income from the newly acquired French colonies.

Winston Churchhill Stamp Collection Analysis
I believe that the price of Winston Churchhill's stamp collection is dependent upon the value people are willing to pay to own it. It's the same for
when famous artists pass away their artwork cost more than it ever did when the artist was selling it while they were alive. It has to do with the
economic theory that says prices are determined by supply and demand. There is probably a limited amount of the original stamps to make up the
collection left available for sale, so the price is high to own the originals because they are so rare, and the person is not living to take part in making
more of the item. If these stamps are numerous and are still being made than the price would be reasonably cheaper. Depending on how many people

The Stamp Act
The passing of the Stamp Act by Parliament in 1765 caused a rush of angry protests by the colonists in British America that perhaps "aroused and
unified Americans as no previous political event ever had." It levied a tax on legal documents, almanacs, newspapers, and nearly every other form of
paper used in the colonies. Adding to this hardship was the need for the tax to be paid in British sterling, not in colonial paper money. Although this
duty had been in effect in England for over half a century and was already in effect in several colonies in the 1750?s, it called into question the
authority of Parliament over the overseas colonies that had no representation therein. When the news of the passage of this...show more content...
Lastly, That it is the indispensable duty of these colonies, to the best of sovereigns, to the mother country, and to themselves, to endeavour by a loyal
and dutiful address to his Majesty, and humble applications to both Houses of Parliament, to procure the repeal of the Act for granting and applying
certain stamp duties, of all clauses of any other Acts of Parliament, whereby the jurisdiction of the Admiralty is extended as aforesaid, and of the other
late Acts for the restriction of American Commerce.
Simply by suggesting that Parliament had overstepped its implied boundaries, the colonists were considered to be boldly defiant. The Resolutions were
sent to the king and Parliament, where they were met as warmly as the Stamp Act itself was in the colonies.
Many Englishmen held their own opinions of these, including Soame Jenyns, a member of Parliament from 1741–1780. Jenyns wrote a pamphlet
entitled The Objections to the Taxation of our American Colonies by the Legislature of Great Britain, briefly consider?d. The excerpt in the text argues
for Parliament?s right to tax the colonies and discusses briefly the theory of virtual representation. He begins by censuring those questioning the
jurisdiction of Parliament:

British Resistance To The Stamp Act
At the end of the French–Indian War in 1763 the British began imposing a lot of tax acts upon the American Colonies. In 1765 the Stamp Act was put
in place. As a result of the tax that was put into place the 'Sons of Liberty', an anti–British group, was created as the main opposition to British rule
over the Colonies. The Sons of Liberty threatened those who all supported the Stamp Act, and attacked the home of Thomas Hutchinson–who was the
chief justice. This dangerous disagreement was followed by political resistance by the Colonies assemblies, who sent delegates to the Stamp Act
Congress in New York to speak on their disagreement with the Act. Britain responded to this resistance by repealing the Stamp Act before the end of
the next year,

On March 22, 1765 the British Parliament passed a bill called the Stamp Act. I am Adam and I am 14 years old. I just heard two people talking
about the the Stamp Act that just came out of a town meeting. "What was talked about in the meeting about the Stamp Act" and got no response
from them. I have to find out what that meeting was all about. A week later, I found out what the meeting was all about. It was about if we are
going to pay the taxes on all the paper things or are we not. This is all about the Stamp Act from King George the third. The problem is the King is
making us have taxes on every paper thing we buy such as: newspaper, notebooks, playing cards, and etc. The reason was to raise money needed for
military forces and defenses. The reaction of the Stamp Act was an outburst of denunciation. " Unlike previous Acts and Taxes imposed by the British

Affix The Stamp Analysis
The next reason colonists were justified in separating was because Britain and the colonists argued to the point where taxes were placed as
punishments instead of the purpose of causing economical growth. In the image called "This is the Place to Affix the Stamp," an image of a skull
and crossbones is shown, which could represent a symbol of misfortune or consequence. The symbol was made after the stamp act was passed, to
show their resent for the newly placed taxes, as they had believed it was unnecessary. The symbol is also evidence that Britain placing more taxes
without the representation of the colonists is damaging their relations with each other, which could prove more valuable than the extra money
obtained, as in the long run it would

Stamp Act Research Paper
In 1765, the Stamp Act was passed by the British Parliament. This act was basically established for all Americans to pay tax on every single item
that they have used. "The money collected by the Stamp Act was to be used to help pay the costs of defending and protecting the American
frontier" (A summary of the 1765 Stamp Act). With that being said, this money is being used for a good cause. However, everyone has his or her
own life. One cannot force someone to do anything that is not of his or her will to do it. Although, the money is to be used for the debts that they
owed and it will be used towards protecting the American frontier, but it should not be an obligation for everyone to pay for it. Moreover, the

A lot of people will disagree on the way that they are asking for help. They are asking for help the wrong way, in order to get the help that they
need, they will need to be more polite to the people instead of making it an obligation for everyone. I do not disagree with the Stamp Act because it
is a really smart way of collecting money in order to pay past debts for a nation, but at the same time, the people are also aware of the fact that they
should not be the one responsible for such thing. I would definitely help the government in this case, but they would have to come up with a better
way to portray those people into believing in what they are doing with the money. They should try to persuade the people by saying, for example, I
will need your support with your money in order to help protect you. When you ask for something and you also give them some benefits, then it will
be a better way of receiving what you asked for. The bible says in Genesis 14:19–20, "and he blessed Abram, saying, "Blessed be Abram by God Most

Essay On The Stamp Act
Hundreds of years ago, there was a war that made the British stop controlling the American colonies and made what is today the United States of
America. The colonies were huge underdogs with poor amounts of supplies and clothing, but surprisingly found a way to victory and got their
independence from the British. Since the war, America has been an independent and powerful country in the world as they still are today. Sparks
flew in colonist anger as British Parliament passed acts that America thought were unreasonable, such as the stamp act, this act was in place so the
British could raise money. The colonists at this time had to buy stamps that were imprinted into paper goods, newspapers, documents, advertisements,
and playing cards. The stamp act was one of the most hated acts by the Americans since it applied to everyone and they always needed the stamps.

response to the letter he ordered to seize and destroy colonists artillery, ammunition, small arms, and tents and the only way for this plan to be

The Stamp Act was one of the many intolerable acts that were passed during this time period to collect higher tax, in return for providing protective
measures. 
 Stamp Act: basically required the colonists to pay a tax on every single paper document or products made out of papers (for example,
dice and paper cards). This Act was passed without colonists' approval, which is why the issue of Taxation without Representation within British
Parliament became a controversial issue. 
 Stamp Act Congress (October 1765): each colony sent a delegate to this congress to discuss the issue
regarding unfair taxation. This eventually led to British Parliament issuing Declaratory Act that gave full power over the colonies to the King and the
Parliament.

The Contribution Of The Stamp Act
As American's of today, we often take for granted the kinds of freedoms that were earned hundreds of years ago. Sacrifices had to be made in
order to gain the amount of freedom we so greatly deserved; sacrifices that were at one point a great risk to many free colonists. As the Parliament
wanted to gain more control and money, it took a toll on the colonists in America and led to conflict of interests. The Stamp act was a way for the
British to collect money for their expenses and debts. After the rise of tension came the startling Boston Massacre, where 5 colonists were killed by
British men on the streets of Boston. At this point tensions are high between the British Parliament and the colonists, and in 1773 when the British
decided to add taxes onto the Tea coming in from India, the colonists (some disguised as Indians) had other plans for that taxed tea. They dumped all
of the tea into the Boston Harbor, later being named as the Boston Tea Party. As punishment, the British passed the Intolerable Acts, which basically
shut down the colonist's self–government. All of these Acts and incidents were four of the many seeds that led up to the Revolutionary War. The Stamp
Act of 1765 was one of the initial disagreements that sparked the conflict between British Parliament and the colonists. The act required everything
printed to be taxed. In order to print things like newspapers, court documents, books, almanacs, land deeds, etc., you had to carry a stamp purchased

Colonists did not react well to the new tax. Fire was fueled with fire as colonist shared their anger, which resulted in many rebellious acts. Boston
merchants and their wives started the first reaction, which was boycotting. Boycotts had worked before and it was totally legal in the colonies. Next
were the riots. Colonists would ban together and pressure the tax collector to resign, if the collector was to refuse they would be mobbed until they
would do so. That was just the beginning. Rioters had attacked one of the tax collector's home, destroying everything from furniture and clothes to
paper and books, the colonist made sure to cause costly damages. There was even incidents of physical abuse. Stamp agents were being hung or were

Colonial View Of The Stamp Act

  • 1. Colonial View Of The Stamp Act The colonists would create riots in the streets to scare the tax collectors into not collecting taxes anymore. Ordinary people sometimes used violence to force leaders to do what they believed to be fair.The colonists and the British leaders had different views on the Stamp Act. The British did not like the protests because the colonists were bringing harm to the towns."The hellish crew fell upon my house with the rage of devils."This shows that Hutchinson thought that the people who were protesting were devils."Such ruins were never seen in America."This shows that Hutchinson thought that the crowds were creating messes that were the worst in America. The colonial view of the Stamp Act was hatred. They they were mad at parliament for taxing Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 2. Reflection On The Stamp Act Of 1765 Today, I sat down with my family at our home in Boston, and we had a very interesting conversation about the most recent actions of the British Parliament that is hurting all of the colonists, their families, and communities that we live in. Of course, I am talking about the Stamp Act of 1765. At first, I thought I was the only person in our family who paid any attention to the political events and unfair actions of good old mother England. I was a little nervous about how our family was going to react when I told them that I had just signed up to be a member of the Sons of Liberty. My family was very interested in what the Sons of Liberty were going to do to help the colonists in the fight against what all colonists see as unfair taxation ...show more content... The colonist argued to the king that the representatives should be the only ones to tax the colonist. They thought it wasn't fair and started using the phrase" taxation without representation". Which meant that the colonist wanted a say in whether the taxes should be balanced or not. In my opinion, I believe that it wasn't fair and the British should let us have a say. Which everybody believes that too probably. After the declaring of the stamp act, The Patriots formed a group of protesters known as the Sons of Liberty. Who fought for the other colonists. The leader of these protesters were the one and only, Samuel Adams. These protesters used many the different methods, but the one that stood out was the method of intimidation to get tax collectors to resign from their job. this method worked really well for the Sons of Liberty. This is one of the many phenomenal reasons that the Sons of Liberty were an import role in the American revolution. In the year of 1766, a group of protesters known as the Stamp Act congress started meeting in the great and wonderful City of New York City. The dates of the meeting were the month of October 7 until October 23, 1765. In result of this act of the Stamp Act Congress, The British repealed on the date of, March 18,1766. Which caused the act to have no more play on the colonists. Now the Americans have the freedom of the possession of paper Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 3. Essay On The Tax Stamp Act Of 1765 America from 1754 to 1763. After 1763, the British procured a nation debt of about 140 million pounds. Colonists were told to do their part in paying of this debt therefore their administrative expenses rose from 70,000 to 350,000 pounds. When the Proclamation Line of 1763 prohibited colonists from entering the land they fought for, they were enraged but these new and unfair payments only increased their bitterness. To enforce these payments, George Greenville (Prime minister) reorganized the British Empire's messy political structures with a mercantilist focus. He then passed these two acts. The Sugar Act of 1764 created a tax on sugar, molasses, wine, coffee, silks and other luxury items. This had such a great impact because of the people's love for rum. However, a greater repercussion could be that of smuggling which was a result of such high taxation and the fact that the best sugar grew within the French colonies. For this to find an end, taxes would need to decrease. The colonial economy lacked its needed support....show more content... This was to serve as reimbursement for the British military's protection of the colonies. What was taxed such as wills, bills, deeds, newspapers, and even playing cards became too long of a list. In hopes for an end to these taxations, a stamp act resistance rose. Protests included the making of stamp agents or tax collectors' effigies (look alike dummies) to be burned in the towns. This was successful only to an extent. The stamp act was repealed in 1766, but the government created the Declaratory Act which professed parliament's full authority to make laws, binding the colonies in whatever cases they determine fit. The British government was now allowed to intercede Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 4. Stamp Act Assignment The primary source document chosen for this assignment is a newspaper from the Pennsylvania Gazette. Stamp Act was commenced on November 1, 1765. The primary source was produced just six days after the commencement and gives an account of how the cities of Boston, New York, and Philadelphia responded to the first accounts of Stamp Act distributors trying to collect dues. All three cities hanged the distributors names in effigy and destroyed the distributors personal property in bonfires. In 1765, most colonists were still loyal subjects to the Crown, but the Act was seen as an encroachment upon their personal liberties, namely the right to tax the colonists without the colonists having representation in the British Parliament.

  • 5. Why Is The Stamp Act Unfair To The British The Stamp Act It was the french and indian war, and it was that war that left the british in debt. But the british thought of a new way of collecting money and it involved adding more money to the british's creations. therefore it was called the Stamp Act. the Stamp Act relied on the colonials to buy the british's goods, but with a the british would make the colonists pay taxes with the stuff they bought from the british. The colonials started to realise what the british have done and tried to everything in their "power" to stop it. In my opinion the stamp act was unfair towards the colonists because the british made the colonists pay more for the stuff they usually bought from the british. And on top of that the colonists didn't Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 6. What Are The Effects Of The Stamp Act In early spring of 1765, Prime Minister Grenville introduced the Stamp Act. As a "direct tax" on the colonists, the Stamp Act stipulated that "anyone who used or purchased anything printed on paper had to buy a revenue stamp for it" and these included items such as newspapers, legal documents, and playing cards. In a sense, the Stamp Act affected every level of society; landowners, merchants, printers, and sailors were all required to pay taxes for the printed papers they used. The Stamp Act was not welcomed with open arms in the colonists because it raised constitutional issues that initiated the first serious protests against British imperial policy. The colonists felt, compared to their counterparts in Britain, the British Parliament wasn't treating them fairly. The British colonists in America felt deprived of the rights they enjoyed as British subjects such as the right to representation. Per the unwritten British Constitution, "only representatives for whom British subjects voted could tax them". Although the British Parliament imposed taxes and was the representative body of the colonists, the colonists did not have "actual" or "direct" representation in it. Proponents of the Stamp Act in the British Parliament argue that...show more content... However, the Stamp Act united the colonists in protest. "The Massachusetts Assembly sent letters to the other colonies, asking them to attend a meeting, or congress, to discuss how to respond to the act". All the nine colonists said no to the act and protested under the slogan "no taxation without representation". The Daughters of Liberty encouraged the locals to refuse buying British goods. They made their own tea from local herbs and berries. The non–importation movement also ensured that no British goods were imported into the colonists thereby disrupting trade for British Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 7. The Stamp Act Congress The stamp act congress was a meeting of representatives from many of the colonies, the congress was formed to protest the newly passed Stamp Act in 1765. It adopted a declaration of rights as well as sent letters of complaints to the king and parliament; the first sign of colonial unity and organized resistance. Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 8. Why Was The Stamp Act Important The Stamp Act was a vital piece of legislation. It was already in force in England and was a good source of revenue for the Crown from the people. The tax was working very well in England and if enforced successfully in the American colonies, it would provide the vital income needed to support the army. After the Seven Years war, Great Britain had taken colonies from France on the continent. Therefore, it was paramount that a standing army filled the void left by the French. These new colonies would be new sources of income to Britain, and, therefore, had to be secured at all costs. The Stamp Act was a means that would justify the desired ends; i.e. increased income from the newly acquired French colonies. Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 9. Winston Churchhill Stamp Collection Analysis I believe that the price of Winston Churchhill's stamp collection is dependent upon the value people are willing to pay to own it. It's the same for when famous artists pass away their artwork cost more than it ever did when the artist was selling it while they were alive. It has to do with the economic theory that says prices are determined by supply and demand. There is probably a limited amount of the original stamps to make up the collection left available for sale, so the price is high to own the originals because they are so rare, and the person is not living to take part in making more of the item. If these stamps are numerous and are still being made than the price would be reasonably cheaper. Depending on how many people value the Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 10. The Stamp Act Essay The Stamp Act The passing of the Stamp Act by Parliament in 1765 caused a rush of angry protests by the colonists in British America that perhaps "aroused and unified Americans as no previous political event ever had." It levied a tax on legal documents, almanacs, newspapers, and nearly every other form of paper used in the colonies. Adding to this hardship was the need for the tax to be paid in British sterling, not in colonial paper money. Although this duty had been in effect in England for over half a century and was already in effect in several colonies in the 1750?s, it called into question the authority of Parliament over the overseas colonies that had no representation therein. When the news of the passage of this...show more content... Lastly, That it is the indispensable duty of these colonies, to the best of sovereigns, to the mother country, and to themselves, to endeavour by a loyal and dutiful address to his Majesty, and humble applications to both Houses of Parliament, to procure the repeal of the Act for granting and applying certain stamp duties, of all clauses of any other Acts of Parliament, whereby the jurisdiction of the Admiralty is extended as aforesaid, and of the other late Acts for the restriction of American Commerce. Simply by suggesting that Parliament had overstepped its implied boundaries, the colonists were considered to be boldly defiant. The Resolutions were sent to the king and Parliament, where they were met as warmly as the Stamp Act itself was in the colonies. Many Englishmen held their own opinions of these, including Soame Jenyns, a member of Parliament from 1741–1780. Jenyns wrote a pamphlet entitled The Objections to the Taxation of our American Colonies by the Legislature of Great Britain, briefly consider?d. The excerpt in the text argues for Parliament?s right to tax the colonies and discusses briefly the theory of virtual representation. He begins by censuring those questioning the jurisdiction of Parliament: The right of the Legislature of Great–Britain to impose taxes on her American Colonies, and the Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 11. British Resistance To The Stamp Act At the end of the French–Indian War in 1763 the British began imposing a lot of tax acts upon the American Colonies. In 1765 the Stamp Act was put in place. As a result of the tax that was put into place the 'Sons of Liberty', an anti–British group, was created as the main opposition to British rule over the Colonies. The Sons of Liberty threatened those who all supported the Stamp Act, and attacked the home of Thomas Hutchinson–who was the chief justice. This dangerous disagreement was followed by political resistance by the Colonies assemblies, who sent delegates to the Stamp Act Congress in New York to speak on their disagreement with the Act. Britain responded to this resistance by repealing the Stamp Act before the end of the next year, Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 12. Write An Essay On The Stamp Act On March 22, 1765 the British Parliament passed a bill called the Stamp Act. I am Adam and I am 14 years old. I just heard two people talking about the the Stamp Act that just came out of a town meeting. "What was talked about in the meeting about the Stamp Act" and got no response from them. I have to find out what that meeting was all about. A week later, I found out what the meeting was all about. It was about if we are going to pay the taxes on all the paper things or are we not. This is all about the Stamp Act from King George the third. The problem is the King is making us have taxes on every paper thing we buy such as: newspaper, notebooks, playing cards, and etc. The reason was to raise money needed for military forces and defenses. The reaction of the Stamp Act was an outburst of denunciation. " Unlike previous Acts and Taxes imposed by the British on the colonies the Stamp Act affected everyone." Every colony was all affected badly by the taxes....show more content... He wrote seven resolutions and every time he wrote everyone of them were getting worse and worse. Another, person who helped the stamp act was Samuel Adams. He had efforts of not letting British give the colonials taxes .He was a leader of the Sons of Liberty and they are responsible for the Stamp Act. I heard about a riot that has got several people to go against the taxes, but still many wanting it. Well, for once I am all against the taxes because I think they shouldn't have the colonies pay. The reason for the taxes is to pay for the defending and protecting soldiers in the Appalachian Mountains. Do you know how many is on the front Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 13. Affix The Stamp Analysis The next reason colonists were justified in separating was because Britain and the colonists argued to the point where taxes were placed as punishments instead of the purpose of causing economical growth. In the image called "This is the Place to Affix the Stamp," an image of a skull and crossbones is shown, which could represent a symbol of misfortune or consequence. The symbol was made after the stamp act was passed, to show their resent for the newly placed taxes, as they had believed it was unnecessary. The symbol is also evidence that Britain placing more taxes without the representation of the colonists is damaging their relations with each other, which could prove more valuable than the extra money obtained, as in the long run it would Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 14. Stamp Act Research Paper In 1765, the Stamp Act was passed by the British Parliament. This act was basically established for all Americans to pay tax on every single item that they have used. "The money collected by the Stamp Act was to be used to help pay the costs of defending and protecting the American frontier" (A summary of the 1765 Stamp Act). With that being said, this money is being used for a good cause. However, everyone has his or her own life. One cannot force someone to do anything that is not of his or her will to do it. Although, the money is to be used for the debts that they owed and it will be used towards protecting the American frontier, but it should not be an obligation for everyone to pay for it. Moreover, the government is not trying to ask...show more content... A lot of people will disagree on the way that they are asking for help. They are asking for help the wrong way, in order to get the help that they need, they will need to be more polite to the people instead of making it an obligation for everyone. I do not disagree with the Stamp Act because it is a really smart way of collecting money in order to pay past debts for a nation, but at the same time, the people are also aware of the fact that they should not be the one responsible for such thing. I would definitely help the government in this case, but they would have to come up with a better way to portray those people into believing in what they are doing with the money. They should try to persuade the people by saying, for example, I will need your support with your money in order to help protect you. When you ask for something and you also give them some benefits, then it will be a better way of receiving what you asked for.

It was passed by the British Parliament thus a new tax was imposed among the citizens. The people were taxed on each piece of printed paper they used, ship's papers, licenses,legal documents,playing cards, newspapers, and other publications. All of the money collected by the Stamp Act was used to help pay the price of defending and the protection of the American frontier near Appalachian Mountains.The act was regarded as direct attempt by England to raise money within the colonies without the colonial legislatures acceptance.

  • 16. Essay On The Stamp Act Hundreds of years ago, there was a war that made the British stop controlling the American colonies and made what is today the United States of America. The colonies were huge underdogs with poor amounts of supplies and clothing, but surprisingly found a way to victory and got their independence from the British. Since the war, America has been an independent and powerful country in the world as they still are today. Sparks flew in colonist anger as British Parliament passed acts that America thought were unreasonable, such as the stamp act, this act was in place so the British could raise money. The colonists at this time had to buy stamps that were imprinted into paper goods, newspapers, documents, advertisements, and playing cards. The stamp act was one of the most hated acts by the Americans since it applied to everyone and they always needed the stamps. Another act the British made was a series of taxes called the townshend acts in 1767. This act was a tax on all imported goods, and made the Patriots ...show more content... When the colonists got mad and were rebelling British acts, Thomas Gage, governor of what is now Massachusetts, also took action by making orders to seize Patriot supplies. Gage started taking responsibly on April 14th, 1775 when he got a letter to take force against the Patriots. In response to the letter he ordered to seize and destroy colonists artillery, ammunition, small arms, and tents and the only way for this plan to be successful was to make it very secretive. If word got out Gage knew the Patriots would gather up and face his troops, so he made the strategy so private his own troops didn't know what they were going to be ordered to do only his most authorized men knew.

The Stamp Act was one of the many intolerable acts that were passed during this time period to collect higher tax, in return for providing protective measures. 
 Stamp Act: basically required the colonists to pay a tax on every single paper document or products made out of papers (for example, dice and paper cards). This Act was passed without colonists' approval, which is why the issue of Taxation without Representation within British Parliament became a controversial issue. 
 Stamp Act Congress (October 1765): each colony sent a delegate to this congress to discuss the issue regarding unfair taxation. This eventually led to British Parliament issuing Declaratory Act that gave full power over the colonies to the King and the Parliament.

  • 18. The Contribution Of The Stamp Act As American's of today, we often take for granted the kinds of freedoms that were earned hundreds of years ago. Sacrifices had to be made in order to gain the amount of freedom we so greatly deserved; sacrifices that were at one point a great risk to many free colonists. As the Parliament wanted to gain more control and money, it took a toll on the colonists in America and led to conflict of interests. The Stamp act was a way for the British to collect money for their expenses and debts. After the rise of tension came the startling Boston Massacre, where 5 colonists were killed by British men on the streets of Boston. At this point tensions are high between the British Parliament and the colonists, and in 1773 when the British decided to add taxes onto the Tea coming in from India, the colonists (some disguised as Indians) had other plans for that taxed tea. They dumped all of the tea into the Boston Harbor, later being named as the Boston Tea Party. As punishment, the British passed the Intolerable Acts, which basically shut down the colonist's self–government. All of these Acts and incidents were four of the many seeds that led up to the Revolutionary War. The Stamp Act of 1765 was one of the initial disagreements that sparked the conflict between British Parliament and the colonists. The act required everything printed to be taxed. In order to print things like newspapers, court documents, books, almanacs, land deeds, etc., you had to carry a stamp purchased from Get more content on HelpWriting.net

Fire was fueled with fire as colonist shared their anger, which resulted in many rebellious acts. Boston merchants and their wives started the first reaction, which was boycotting. Boycotts had worked before and it was totally legal in the colonies. Next were the riots. Colonists would ban together and pressure the tax collector to resign, if the collector was to refuse they would be mobbed until they would do so. That was just the beginning. Rioters had attacked one of the tax collector's home, destroying everything from furniture and clothes to paper and books, the colonist made sure to cause costly damages.
