1765-11-04, Stamps will not be issued
Broadside of November 4, 1765 which stated that stamps would not be issued, under the order of Gov. George Banyard of Connecticut. Of note, the
British Parliament had passed the Stamp Act, which required the use of specially stamped paper for legal documents, playing cards, calendars, newspapers
and dice for virtually all business in the colonies, and was going into effect on November 1. Following the passage of this strongly opposed act,
representatives from nine of the original thirteen colonies met in October to protest to the King. Economic issues resulting from protests caused
Parliament to repeal the act, although it also declared the right to pass any law over the colonies. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally
held by the New York Historical Society Library).
