Repeal of the Stamp Act

Repeal of the Stamp Act

The cartoon depicts a funeral procession to the tomb of the Stamp Act, after Parliament repealed that law.

Included in the picture is George Grenville, First Lord of the Treasury (and a leading supporter of the much-hated law). Grenville is carrying a child's coffin, marked "Miss Ame-Stamp born 1765 died 1766."
