So, in Augustthe distributor was forced to resign by a sizeable and angry Boston mob. When this news arrived in Maryland, the precedent for action had been established.
An Annapolis merchant, Zachariah Hood, had been appointed to distribute the stamped paper throughout Maryland. On 26 August a large crowd gathered in Annapolis and quickly turned into a mob, with Samuel Chase as the ringleader.
