Today in History: Acts of Oppression

This day in history in 1765, the oppressive Stamp Act was forced by British Parliament onto the Colonies.

The Stamp Act was a theater act where performers banged trash cans together in rhythm and charged people to watch it, calling it “art.”

The Colonies fought the Revolutionary War just to stop the noise.

The Act resurfaced in 1990, but was renamed Stomp to make it sound a little less oppressive.
