    Sugar Act (1764) Replaced the Molasses Act (1733). Reduced the duties on imported sugar, while the British made a concerted effort to enforce the act & punish smugglers. Quartering Act (1765) Required colonists to provide food & supplies to British troops stationed in the colonies. Stamp Act (1765) Taxed all printed material in the colonies, including - but not limited to - stamps, legal documents, newspapers, playing cards, etc. Historical Significance: Led to the formation of colonial organizations such as the Stamp Act Congress, Sam Adams's Loyal Nine, & the Sons of Liberty & the suggestion that a complete break with Britain was essential to the colonies' future.
