    This twenty-two page pamphlet contains the full extent of the Stamp Act, as passed by Parliament in March 1765. As the first direct tax levied by Parliament on the colonies, it started a firestorm of opposition. Great Britain needed the money to fund their military presence in America. The colonial opposition argued that without representation in Parliament they cannot be subject to any kind of British taxation.
