'The Repeal. - or the Funeral Procession of Miss Americ-Stamp.'

The Stamp Act of 1765 inspired widespread antagonism, as many colonists disputed the British government’s right to impose internal taxation. This print satirises the repeal of the act in 1766 as the death of the favourite female child of its promoter, George Grenville, who carries her coffin.
