The First Continental Congress was created to set forth the views of the people, and protest against the conduct of the King and Parliament of England.
Once Congress was formed, they petitioned the King on behalf of the colonies. In reaction, the British sent orders prohibiting another meeting of Congress. They also sent additional soldiers to America. The result was a state of rebellion.
The rebellion started the War of Independence. In 1776, the colonies separated from England, forming the United States of American and its government.
Eventually, the Continental Congress sought to unionize the states with the "Articles of Confederation". Approval of the ratification brought them together to form the United States of America.
