The First Contenital Congress

King George declared that colonists could not live west of the Appalation Mountains. He sent 10,000 British soldiers to enforce this law.

Colonists were forced to pay taxes on all printed materials. They responded by boycotting all British goods.

Quartering Act

The First Continental Congress was a meeting of delegates from 12 of the 13 colonies that met on September 5 to October 26, 1774 at Carpenters' Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

In 1771, a group of colonists protested 13 years of increasing British oppression, by attacking merchant ships in Boston Harbor. In retaliation, the British close the port, & inflicted even harsher penalties.

When an argument between British soldiers and the colonists ensued, 5 colonists were killed.

The committees of correspondence were shadow governments organized by the Patriot leaders of the 13 Colonies on the eve of the American Revolution.
