The Stamp Act
Sunday, Feb. 17th 1765 at 12am
Boston, MA, United States
The Beginning of a Crisis in the 13 Colonies
The first tax was imposed by the British Parliament on the colonies of British America. The purpose of the tax was to help pay for troops and supplies that William Pitt provided the British with in order to win the French and Indian War. George Grenville thought that the colonists would not mind paying these taxes, because the money from the tax helped pay off the debt that England was in after the war.
