What did the stamp act of 1765 mean?

The Stamp Act of 1765 was the first example of the British Crown imposing a direct tax on its American colonists. The act required that all legal documents, permits, commercial contracts, newspapers, wills, pamphlets, and playing cards in the American colonies be printed on stamp paper (a special type of paper taxable by England).

The reason for the tax was a result of the debt that England incurred during the Seven Years War (The French and Indian War). Although England's debt reached about £800,000,000 in 1764, Prime Minister of Great Britain George Grenville's goal was to only extract £78,000 from the colonists.

What did the Stamp Act Congress of 1765 do?

The Stamp Act Congress was a meeting in the building that would become Federal Hall in New York City in October of 1765 consisting of delegates from 9 of the 13 colonies that discussed and acted upon the recently passed Stamp Act. The meetings adopted a Declaration of Rights and Grievances. The delegates could not be convinced to affix their names to the document and only one signature appeared - the clerk of the congress. Only six of the colonies agreed to write petitions to the King and both houses of Parliament.[1] This Congress is viewed by some as the first organized American action in the prelude to the American Revolution. The colonies that did not send delegates were Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, and New Hampshire.
American independence from Britain was inevitable.

How did the colonists react to the stamp act of 1765?

The colonists reacted in many ways, violent and non-violent. Most times it would start out as a peaceful protest like holding signs and saying chants like "No Taxation without Representation". Then some of the Red Coats would come along to cause a fight and get people arrested. Also, the colonists would write letters to the British government stating why these duties (taxes) were not fair. They would ignore the tax to the point where they got arrested and fined. Other colonists would Tar and Feather the tax collectors when they came to their house. Tar and Feather means to: Take hot tar and drench the tax collector in it. Then, cover them in chicken feathers and carry them (put them in a wagon) around town for people to trash them. People would throw things at them and also beat them up, if the person lugging them around allowed it.
