It taxed a printer's entire business: pamphlets, almanacs, newspapers, and newspaper advertisements. The law required these documents to be written or printed on paper carrying a stamp embossed by the Treasury Office in England which was sold only by the stamp commissioners. This legislation hurt printers even more because many of them manufactured their own paper. Prime Minister George Grenville (1712-1770), in the meantime, did not think he had asked for anything unreasonable. If a merchant did not consider it worth the price of a stamp to clear a ship from a colonial harbor, than he should not have it make the voyage, Grenville thought. Similiarly, if a wife was not worth the price of the stamp required on a marriage license, a man should remain a bachelor. The Stamp Act of 1765 An act for granting and applying certain stamp duties, and other duties, in the British colonies and plantations in; America, towards further defraying the expenses of defending, protecting, and securing the same; and for amending such parts of the several acts of parliament relating to the trade and revenues of the said colonies and plantations, as direct the manner of determining and recovering the penalties and forfeitures therein mentioned.

CRUCIAL TOPICS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

2

Crucial Topics of the American Revolution
Eight topics prove critical for the American Revolution syllabus. They include The Stamp
Act, John Adams, Articles of Confederation, Declaration of Independence, Continental Congress,
Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and the Boston Tea Party.
The Stamp Act
The stamp act was a prescription for taxes to be levied on transactions, be they commercial
or legal. The fees were also levied on crucial documents used in the court like attorney licenses,
and others like diplomas, contracts, dice, bonds, mortgages, and others. The most hit were printers
because it taxed every component of printing (Britain, 1999).
Teachers must teach this topic because it shows the brutality of the British and their
insensitivity to the human plight in America. The cat was one of the key inspirations for the
American Revolution, and it is, for this reason, it must be taught. The 1760s was the period for
revolution, and this act fanned its flames.
John Adams
The topic of John Adams talks about the role he played in American independence. He was
a champion of American rights, which ended up getting elected to Congress in 1774. Adams,
among others, helped write the declaration of independence (Barkalow and Mogg, 2016).
The climax of the American Revolution was every American's end desire, and that is
independence. John Adams played a significant role in fighting for American rights and writing
the declaration for independence, which makes the topic meaningful. The topic fits into the 1760s
theme because it captures the relentless spirit of the revolution that led to independence.
