The Hanna's Town Resolves are missing[edit]

This list of complaints against the king from the Western frontier were signed before the Mecklenburg Resolves and more than a year before the Declaration of Independence.[1]Freedomwright (talk) 07:42, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Where is the Declaratory Act[edit]

After the Stamp Act, parliament repealed the stamp duty, but passed the Declaratory Act asserting their power over the colonies. Doesn't this deserve mention? Foofighter20x (talk) 00:53, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Not in this template, which points to articles on declarations and resolves passed by colonists in response to acts of Parliament. We have no articles on any colonial resolves passed in response to the Declaratory Act. (It was generally overlooked in the celebration over the repeal of the Stamp Act.) The Declaratory Act does appear in the template {{British law and the American Revolution}}, which navigates between the various acts of Parliament. —Kevin Myers 02:54, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
