|WHO- Britain and the American
|WHAT/HOW- Britain had won the
fight over who would control North America against France. The victory
was sweet but expensive. Britain couldn't possibly make up the money on
their own, so they made America pay too. The British Parliament passed
the Stamp Act in 1765. The act established that whenever you published
a newspaper or any kind of legal document, a stamp was needed to be
purchased from the British Goverment. The colonists refused the stamps
and held violent protests to stop the Stamp Act.
Beginning of 1765 and ended in 1766
American Colonies and Britain
was in major debt with the win over France to control North America.
The stamps would pay back most of the money from the war.
