America



The 1765 Stamp Act extended the stamp duty, which had been in force on home territory since 1694 to cover the American colonies as well. However, the colonists despised this since they were not represented in Parliament and refused to see how a body, which did not represent them, could tax them. The cry ‘no taxation without representation’ rang throughout the colonies.




The influence of Magna Carta can be clearly seen in the U.S. Bill of Rights, which enumerates various rights of the people and restrictions on government power, such as:



No person shall be ... deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.






Article 21 from the Declaration of Rights in the Maryland Constitution of 1776 reads:




That no freeman ought to be taken, or imprisoned, or disseized of his freehold, liberties, or privileges, or

outlawed, or exiled, or in any manner destroyed, or deprived of his life, liberty, or property, but by the

judgment of his peers, or by the law of the land.
