University of Missouri history professor John Bullion spoke to students about the debt incurred by the British government in fighting the Seven Years' War in the 1750s and 60s, and efforts to recoup some of that cost by taxing the American colonies, including the Stamp Act of 1765.

He answered questions from students during the lecture. close
