September 5th, 1774 Carpenter's Hall, Philadeplhia
Delegates from twelve of the thirteen colonies (such as George Washington, John Adams, and Patrick Henry) meet to organize colonial resistance to the Parliament's Coercive Acts.
Fighting against the uprise you fool!
I have had enough with these Coercive Acts!!!!
The First Continental Congress formed to discuss a resistance against the Parliament's Coercive Acts
We are boycotting all British goods!
In the end, the voices of compromise carried the day. Rather than calling for independence, the First Continental Congress passed and signed the Continental Association in its Declaration and Resolves, which called for a boycott of British goods to take effect in December 1774.
We are resisting these cruel and unusual Coericive Acts.
