On this day in history, the British imposed the Stamp Act on the American Colonists. In an effort to raise money to pay off their expenses from the French and Indian War, Parliament passed a tax on all printed materials, such as playing cards or newspapers. As I'm sure we all know, this tax in addition to the various other taxes imposed both before and after the stamp act did not make the colonists happy, and these taxes were one of the leading causes towards the Revolutionary War.
