Ben Chen

With the unreasonably increasing taxes and less freedoms they can got, the colonists are unsatisfied with the legislation made by the Great Britain because those laws are beneficial not to them but just to the England. The advancing anger with the England resulted in First Continental Congress established by settlers who claim a Declaration of the independence. I would obviously agree with this Congress and try my efforts without hesitation because I want our own liberties!
