You'll never guess what happened last night. A mod came and went into the lieutenant governor's house. They burnt his books, clothes, anything they could find. Then, they stole his money. I can't believe someone would do that, I think they're just trying to scare him off. I understand that they're making a point for rebellion against Britain, but did they have to take it so far?
Do you sell the newspaper?
A dangerous mob, set in place by the stamp act, became violent in October of 1765. They destroyed papers, books, and documents from the lieutenant governor, judge of admiralty, and government managers.
The people in the northern colonies were outraged at the severity of the stamp act. They forced stamp-officers out of office. All stamped papers were collected and sent onto a British ship.
THe colonies decided to boycott all trade and traded items with the British. The colonies would not sell any items that came from Great Britain until the stamp act was removed.
