The Stamp Act of Fairness
Americans have resented being treated unfairly forever. On this date in 1765, the British Parliament imposed on the American colonies the Stamp Act requiring the use of specially stamped paper in all legal and commercial transactions. Meant to help pay for British military adventures on the frontier and in Europe, the act caused immediate and widespread objection for its blatantly coercive nature (on every stamp a Tudor rose framed the words, “America, shame to him who thinks evil of it”) and because the colonists had had no say in its application. This act began a process whereby colonists began to feel less linked to a far away and exploitive government and more connected to their neighbors. A gross miscalculation by greedy members of parliament out of touch with their ostensible constituents.
