The Declaration of Rights and Grievances, issued by the Stamp Act Congress in 1765, highlights the increasing frustration that colonists felt in their relation to the Crown. In this Declaration, the colonists declared their undoubted Rights of Englishmen, that trial by jury is a right, and the injurious nature of the Stamp Act.

The Declaration and Resolves of the First Continental Congress, bearing some similarity, was adopted after the passage of the Intolerable Acts.
