British Pass Stamp Act

The British Empire passed a bill on this day in 1765 that laid seeds for the rebellion of one of its most profitable colonies, America. The bill was the Stamp Act, and it was passed as an easy way to scrounge up money for British troops to be stationed in the colonies. This act enraged the colonists and many protests were staged. The Stamp Act was later repealed but the damage was already done and the seeds of rebellion were sowed.
