The Sons Of Liberty
American colonies had to pay taxes to protect themselves, the colonists did not like the amount they had to pay. The taxes for the Stamp Act had to be paid for with British money. They would not take colonial paper money
Since the war had left Britain with a large national debt, it also was especially important that the colonies should pay their share of the costs of keeping these men in America. Colonies had to pay for the soldiers to be there. They colonies would stay in the people homes
The Son of Liberty was a response to the stamp act. The first group formed was most likely formed out of the “Loyal Nine”. It started in Boston, then other groups started forming in New York and in Connecticut.
