Who was the stamp act about?
Well first.. the stamp act was not a person it was a act. The stamp act was placed on everything from important documents to playing cards and dice. Most merchants did not like the stamp act because the merchants had to pay for the stamps which meant the price of that object was going to be more and the higher the price was 4 that object the less people wanted to buy the object. Most stamp agents were tarred and feathered and some hanged! The PATRIOTS did not want to pay the tax, the LOYALIST wanted to pay the tax.
