On September 5, 1774, delegates from each of the 13 colonies except for Georgia which was fighting a Native-American uprising and was dependent on the British for military supplies met in Philadelphia as the First continental Congress to organize colonial resistance to Parliament's Coercive Acts.
The Intolerable Acts were a series of laws passed by the British Parliament in the mid-1770s. The British instated the acts to make an example of the colonies after the Boston Tea Party, and the outrage they caused became the major push that led to the outbreak American Revolution in 1775.
John Dickinson drafted the Olive Branch Petition, which was adopted by the Second Continental Congress on July 5 and submitted to King George on July 8, 1775. It was an attempt to assert the rights of the colonists while maintaining their loyalty to the British crown.
