Rockingham Declaratory Act

Rockingham Declaratory Act:

After the fall of the Greenville government in 1765. Rockingham formed his government in England. The Stamp Act was immediately annulled by Rockingham. But another Act was passed which declared that “The British Parliament was fully empowered to impose taxes on America.” It was ridiculous that England had to revoke the tax under compulsion but she was not prepared to part with the obsession of proclaiming her right of taxation. This proclamation also became the butt of a strong reaction in America. Consequently, the prestige of the British government received a shocking setback.
