  • Stamp Act
  • When did it take place
  • Why It Is Important
  • No Representatives
  • In 1765, Grenville proposed a new act, or law, called the stamp act. This law required the colonist to buy a stamp for every piece of paper they used. Newspaper had to be printed on stamped paper. Wills, licenses, and even playing cards had to have stamps .
  • Intolerable Act
  • The colonists sensed tyranny and they were really upset about it. They were willing to pay taxes passed by their own assemblies, where their representatives could vote on them. But the colonists had no representatives in Parliament. For this reson, they argued, Parliament had no right to tax the. They saw the Stamp Act violation of their rights as British subjects. "No taxation without representation!" they declared.
  • When did it take place?
  • This is important because it shows us how important it was for colonists to have representatives in Parliament to go against the British.
  • Why it is important?
  • Great Britain's anger led Parliament to pass a new series of laws in 1774. These laws were so harsh that many colonists called them intolerable, or unacceptable. Throughout the colonies, they became known as the Intolerable Acts.
  • The intolerable acts did not force the colonists to give in. Boston Patriots declared they would "abandon their city to flames" before paying a penny for the lost tea. Merchants in other cities showed their support by closing their shops. Many colonies sent food and money to Boston so that its citizens would not starve.
  • This is important because it is an important factor contributing to American Revolution. Colonists felt that this legislation violated their rights as Englishmen and their Natural Rights as human beings.
