In 1765, the Stamp Act went into effect. A direct tax on all materials printed for commercial and legal use, it was imposed by the British government to help pay off expenses it had incurred fighting the Seven Years’ War. The Stamp Act was a bitter pill for American colonists tired of being taxed without parliamentary representation. Read about how the Liberty Tree became a symbol for the revolutionaries protesting the hated tax.
