  • The Stamp Act irritated the colonists. They believed that only their own assemblies could tax them. 
  • The boycott worked!

  • Now we have our rights back!
  • When Patrick Henry found out about the new taxation law, he persuaded the Virginia House of Burgesses to produce and give a resolution against the Stamp Act.
  • Britain hasn't lost yet! The Stamp Act might've ended, but the Declaratory Act is just starting!
  • Not again...
  • Samuel Adams began the Sons of Liberty to protest against the Stamp Act. They burned effigies that looked like unpopular tax collectors on the streets. The colonists also got merchants to boycott British goods by not buying them.
  • Because the British lost so much money from the boycott, they decided to drop the Stamp Act.
  • Soon after the cancellation of the Stamp Act, the Declaratory Act was created. The Declaratory Act had the same rules as the Stamp Act. This new act included that the British can tax them "in all cases." Now, the colonists couldn't argue that only their own assemblies can tax them.
