Revolutionary war event: stamp act

The stamp act is a new disagreement in the colonies. It commands that the colonies pay taxes to the British whenever they use paper. The stamp act was made to try and pay off war debt the Colonist owed Britian. The stamp act was passed in March, 1765 and ended in March, 1766. It took place in the 13 colonies, but was being commanded from Britian. The stamp act was involved with the British parliment, American colonists, John Cotton who was the congress secretary, and George Greenville who was the British prime minister. The stamp act had a meaningful impact on Georgia becuase it showed who was loyal to Britian and who was a patiriot to America. Georgia also contained the meeting place for the Liberty Boys [a group boycotting against stamp act]. The act only lasted a year, but it was a leading cause to The Revolutionary War. It caused huge riots and boycotts that influenced everyone around them. The stamp act was very important to the war and the motivation leading up to it.
