SEE PHOTO(s) - COMPLETE ORIGINALNEWSPAPER,theLondon Chronicle(ENGLAND) dated AUG 31, 1758.This newspaper has an inside pageRED halfpenny TAX STAMP, similar to the ones thatwere objected to by the American Colonies during theSTAMP ACT PROTESTS. These tax stamps, asis present on this newspaper, were afactor in bringing on theAmerican Revolutionary War !!
The Stamp Act met with great resistance in the colonies. It was seen as a violation of the right of Englishmen to be taxed only with their consent—consent which could only be granted through their colonial legislatures. Colonial assemblies sent petitions of protests, and the Stamp Act Congress, reflecting the first significant joint colonial response to any British measure, also petitioned Parliament and the king. Local protest groups, led by colonial merchants and landowners, established connections through correspondence that created a loose coalition that extended from New England to Georgia. Protests and demonstrations initiated by to Sons of Liberty often turned violent and destructive as the masses became involved. Very soon all stamp tax distributors were intimidated into resigning their commissions, and the tax was never effectively collected.
Opposition to the Stamp Act was not limited to the colonies. British merchants and manufacturers, whose exports to the colonies were threatened by colonial economic problems exacerbated by the tax, also pressured Parliament. The Act was repealed on 18 March 1766 as a matter of expedience, but Parliament affirmed its power to legislate for the colonies \"in all cases whatsoever\" by also passing the Declaratory Act. This incident increased the colonists\' concerns about the intent of the British Parliament and added fuel to the growing movement that became the American good condition.
