The Stamp Act
This act was passed by British parliament in 1765. It meant that every single legal document in Massachusetts had to be stamped, and a tax paid, in order for it to truly be legal. Massachusetts citizens were furious because they were now being taxed by a government that didnīt ask them if they wanted the tax, and the taxes were being used to pay for the soldiers that were punishing them.
