  4. 5. <ul><li>The Stamp Act is PASSED </li></ul><ul><li>The Stamp Act of 1765 (short title Duties in American Colonies </li></ul><ul><li>Act 1765 ; 5 George III, c. 12) was a tax imposed by the British Parliament </li></ul><ul><li>on the colonies of British America. The act required that many printed </li></ul><ul><li>materials in the colonies be produced on stamped paper produced in London </li></ul><ul><li>and carrying an embossed revenue stamp. These printed materials were legal </li></ul><ul><li>documents, magazines, newspapers and many other types of paper used </li></ul><ul><li>throughout the colonies. Like previous taxes, the Stamp tax had to be paid in </li></ul><ul><li>valid British currency, not in colonial paper money. The purpose of the tax </li></ul><ul><li>was to help pay for troops stationed in North America after the British victory in the </li></ul><ul><li>French and Indian War. The British government felt that the colonies were the </li></ul><ul><li>primary beneficiaries of this military presence, and should pay at least a portion of </li></ul><ul><li>the expense. </li></ul>
