Mr. Stickler's Liberty Christian HNRS HIST Revolutionary War, Pt. 1 Test 2017

What was the Stamp Act of 1765? This was the first direct tax laid on the Colonies by Parliament. (Pg. 112)
What was to be taxed under the Stamp Act of 1765? It required the use of "stamped paper" (issued and sold by the government) for certain goods or as part of the cost for certain services. (Pg. 112)
Who was George Grenville? He was the Prime Minister of Great Britain under King George III. He was responsible for creating foreign tax policies such as the ones levied against the Colonies.
What was the Proclamation Line of 1763? This was an imaginary line drawn through the Appalachian Mountains after the French & Indian War. Native Americans were given a guarantee that Colonists would not move west of that line.
What was "mercantilism"? This was the predominant economic theory in the 1700's. It stated that governments should try to gain as much wealth as they can through trade and taxation policies. "Wealth" was measured by the amount of gold & silver a country had.
What did Adam Smith say about "mercantilism"? He said that, while mercantile theory was right about using the amount of gold & silver a country had to measure wealth, the value of worker's labor should also be included when figuring wealth.
What did the Stamp Act Congress want to do? They wanted to deny Parliament's right to impose any direct taxes on the Colonies. (SQR2; Paige, Emma L., & Trey)
What did the protest and proposals over Grenville's (financial) reforms suggest? These actions suggested that the reforms had raised "profound issues about the rights of the citizens and of the relationship between Parliament & the Colonial government." (SQR2; Emma W. & Cassie)
