The Repeal, or the Funeral of Miss-Ame Stamp was created by Benjamin Wilson in 1766 and was intended to convince both members of Parliament and the British public of the benefits in repealing the Stamp Act. The cartoon depicts a funeral procession, in which members of Parliament are "burying" the Stamp Act after its "demise."
