Taxation Without Reps


Let s make a deal

  • George Grenville – prime minister of England

    • Writs of Assistance – documents allowing customs officers to enter any location to search for smuggled goods.

      • Smugglers go to a court of “judges” not jury

      • “Guilty until proven innocent”

  • Sugar Act – lowered the tax on molasses

    • Officers could seize goods from smugglers without trial

  • James Otis – Boston lawyer

    • “No taxation without representation and consent”

Let’s Make a Deal


Stamp it out

  • The Quartering Act - forced colonist to house and feed British troops

  • Patrick Henry – member of the Virginia House of Burgesses

    • Resolution – a formal expression of opinion

  • Samuel Adams - Boston

    • Sons of Liberty – organization designed to protest the Stamp Act

    • Burned Effigies – rag figures; raided homes

Stamp It Out


One small step

  • Stamp Acts Congress – 9 colonies met to draft a petition to the King and Parliament

    • Boycott – refuse to buy

    • Nonimportation – pledge not to buy or use goods from a specific place

    • Repeal – cancel

    • It worked, but temporarily

  • The Declaratory Act - bill that gave the Parliament the right to tax and make decisions for the colonies

Rights that have been taken?


More taxes

  • Townshend Acts – taxes paid on colonist imported goods

    • Britain needed money, but saw that taxing the colonists within the colonies was not working

    • Glass, tea, paper, and lead

    • The colonists boycott these items

    • Daughters of Liberty - women who organized to protest and boycott British goods

      • Urged colonists to make homemade goods

      • Thus, becoming economically independent
