One of the next things I learned was the Stamp Act. The Stamp Act was imposed to raise support for new military forces. It was imposed on March 22, 1765. It was in use of stamped paper or affixing of stamps for tax payment. The stamps were required for sales of about 50 trade items. Greenville regarded these measures as responsible. People in England had to pay a higher stamp tax.
The next thing I learned was the Townshend Acts. The Townshend Acts were a series of acts passed by Charles Townshend and Chancellor the Exchequer. The acts were passed on June 29, 1767. The Townshend Acts were passed becasue the British didn't have enough money to supply things for the people fighting in the war.
The Boston Massacre was an incident the British caused when 5 male citizens were killed. This occurred March 5, 1770. The British were in Boston because of the heavy tax burdens of the Townshend Acts. Both sides shared the blame for the incident, only two red coats were found guilty. Those soldiers were released after being branded on the hand.
