Storyboard Text

  • The First Continental Congress
  • So They Gathered
  • Where's Georgia's Reps?
  • Maybe we should be talking peace and not bloody war?
  • We must take the tyrant's actions as a call to arms!
  • Here here!
  • Debate Resolved
  • War shall be reserved for the time being
  • Fine. As long as he hears our grievances and acts on them! 
  • Drafting of these shall causes shall begin at once.
  • Carpenter's Hall, Philadelphia, September 5th, 1774. Discontent has grown for Great Britain over the past months, and the colonies had finally had enough.
  • Promise to Meet Again
  • This Congress is now adjourned!
  • Delegates from 12 of the 13 colonies met to discuss the deteriorating relationships with Great Britain. Some argued that coming violence was unavoidable, while others said peace should be reconsidered.
  • A Continent Inspired
  • Order! Order!
  • Give me liberty or give me death!
  • They decided war was too drastic an option at the present moment in time. So together they drafted declarations and resolves, asking the King and Parliament to reconcile and fix the situation.
  • The Rebels
  • Say the word and spare a moment - and I shall be ready!
  • Before the Congress adjourned, it was decided that they all must meet again in approximately a years time to revisit the issue. Then the delegates were sent home to share the decisions with their colonies.
  • I head for Virginia at once!
  • Leaders like Patrick Henry returned to their local legislatures with fiery rhetoric encouraging their fellow citizens to support the developing patriot cause. They also shared the development of the Continental Congress and ask for the beginning of a stockade of arms incase they were needed. 
  • Here Here!
  • Liberty! We must!
  • Around the colonies, radical ideas and beliefs were spreading. Groups, like the Sons of Liberty, had inspired others. The largest of which was the Minute Men - soldiers ready to fight off the British at a moment's notice. There was but a straw to break the camel's back!
