The question itself can be easily answered when we consider that Dulany’s pamphlet though very outspoken against the British was not the only factor which led to the revolution. Nor was he the only individual from Maryland to speak against it. Charles Carroll of Carrollton was also in an individual who spoke out against the Stamp Act. He questioned the authority the American people had over their lands and property, if the British government could impose such taxes upon them from so far away without any consideration to their situation or circumstances (Russell). It should also be noted that Benjamin Franklin had opposed such taxes ten years before the pamphlet written By Dulany was even circulated. Additionally the marches led by the American colonists within the various states of Rhode Island, New York, Massachusetts and other colonies. All this along with the protests held by the Sons of Liberty have been known to be the some of the bigger sparks which started the fire of the revolution (Dickinson). Perhaps bigger than all of these actions and all of the individuals who caused them, were the actions of one individual, Christopher Gadsden. Christopher Gadsden was a man who in 1765 influenced the South Carolina Assembly to create the Stamp Act Congress. This Congress formed the first official protest against the Stamp Act from members who included some of the most distinguished men from the colonies. They protested against the violation of their rights as Englishmen and stated that their freedom demanded that no tax be imposed on them without their consent. Later on these protests were echoed within Massachusetts and Pennsylvania (Russell).
