Why was the Stamp Act so much more objectionable to the Stamp Act than something like the Sugar Act? What English liberties did it violate? What were the differences between the types of taxes each act created? Finally, how did the colonists get the Stamp Act repealed?
I know this picture is depicting the Jay’s treaty, which was a peace treaty between the US and Great Britain. But, didn’t the colonists hate the treaty? Isn’t that why they’re referring to Jay and Washington as “Hang the cowards”? My question is, Why didn’t they like the treaty?
