We must have a meeting and decide how to handle this situation!
Well I say there should be no taxation without representation!
What we need to do is send King George III an Olive Branch to set up negotiations
Has John Adams gone mad???
Maybe he is right. Massachusetts has gone through a lot with Britain.
I think it is obvious we are far past the point of negotiations! We need to fight back!
Settle down, Adams! We will take a vote!
AFTER THE VOTE: 10 out of the 13 colonies agreed to send the Olive Branch Petition to the King. However, when they received the response, the King insulted the colonists and called them traitors. This unified the colonies with one thought: WE WILL GET LIBERTY HOWEVER WE CAN!
