This Day in History:  1765 – In hopes of raising government revenues, the British government passes the Stamp Act, which levied a direct tax on all printed materials in the American colonies.  The act stirred a storm of protests in the colonies and the phrase “no taxation without representation” was born.

Fact of the Day:  The Stamp Act of 1765 gave rise to the Sons of Liberty-a group of tradesmen who would lead riots in Boston and other seaboard cities, igniting animosity between the British and Americans, and eventually leading the two sides to war.

Quote of the Day:
