The First Continental Congress 1774
We need our basic rights!
When all but one tax had been repealed, the tea act, the colonists rebelled and dressed up as Indians and threw boxes upon boxes of tea into the harbor. This was effective and cost the British a lot of money.
WE WILL MAKE THE BRITISH PAY!
THROW IT ALL OVER MEN!

Shut down the harbor!
The First continental congress was when a lot of delegates had a meeting, and decided to boycott British goods, and they declared to the king that they needed basic rights and he refused.
