Entitled: Britain’s taxation of her colonies – Patrick Henry’s famous speech of protest. 

 The passing of the Stamp Act by the British Parliament gave rise to much opposition in the American colonies, contravening, as it did, the recognised principle that taxation should only be by assent of representatives, and showing that the Mother Country claimed to legislate for the colonies to her own advantage and to their disadvantage without consulting the people of the colonies.  The above illustration shows the ardent orator, Patrick Henry, making his famous speech, in which he denied the right of Britain’s taxation, before the Housew of Burgesses, in May, 1675.
