Guys, we must write to King George together! Only then can our rights be recognized and our concerns valued!
But I still feel British.
Although I am from Virginia, I am an American. We must all think this way and ban together as one!
It doesn't matter! We all believe in liberty and not tyranny. Thus, we must write to King George in confidence!
The Intolerable Acts
What they did was unspeakable! They wasted your generosity an disrespected you! For that we must pass these laws!
I agree! The disrespect is horrid! I will not stand for this these people will be punished! They have gone too far!
We knew you were coming, Paul Revere told us everything! You'll never find anything!
Battles of Lexington and Concord
General Cage the colonists are hiding gun powder and weapons!
We will strike at once! We will surprise them!
Where is the gun powder and weapons!?
The First Continental Congress was a group of 50 men from 12 colonies who met in Philadelphia. This meeting brought together delegates from most of the British colonies. The purpose of the meeting was to ban together in unity and write to King George. The message contained their complaints and asked him to recognize their rights. They also called for a boycott of British goods until the Intolerable acts were repealed.
The Intolerable acts were a set of laws that were so harsh they were deemed "intolerable." These acts stemmed from the Boston Tea party when the colonists threw their tea in the sea. Lord North was furious and thought he was being nice by giving them cheap tea. Only then when his generosity was wasted did he punish the colonists. He believed that their actions had gone too far.
The Battles of Lexington ad Concord were battles that resulted from King George's bad decision about the colonies. King George shoved off the first continental congress's concerns. The first blow at Lexington happened because a spy told General Gage that the colonists were hiding a large supply of weapons and gunpowder. The second blow at Concord happened when the British had gotten there in search of the weapons and gun powder. Because they were hidden the British got frustrated and set gun carriages on fire.
