  7. Resultscompromise Next meeting…1775 Declaration of Rights

  8. Please we don’t want to fight! We just want a voice! Declaration of Rights

  9. Declaration of Rights • List of resolutions to “fix” the Intolerable Acts (this is what “we want”) • Precursor to the Declaration of Independence (this is what “we demand”)

  10. I am the KING! You are my subjects! When I want your opinion I will ask for it.# spoiledbrats As a result, the Intolerable Acts stay in effect. Resentment (of GB) and boycotting of British goods grows. Colonial leaders continue to emerge to rally and unite colonists against the British tyranny. Response to the Declaration of Rights

  11. Huh? What are these words? “They tell us, Sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when will we be stronger? Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace – but there is no peace. I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.” Who’s “we” Why is there no peace? What does he mean by liberty?

  12. Both sides standing firm… • But in all reality, neither side (Patriot or GB) really wants to go to war • Expensive • Lost lives • Not prepared • Is it worth it? Will the alternative be better/worse?

  14. WARERUPTS First Battles of the Revolutionary War Lexington (L) and Concord (W), MA April 1775

  15. Lexington and Concord History Channel Video

  16. Lexington and Concord • Patriots are stockpiling weapons, stealing from British military forts • British troops travel across Massachusetts to stop the patriots • Paul Revere, William Dawes and Samuel Prescott (and eventually 40 other colonists join in) quickly rush to tell colonists that “the British are coming, the British are coming” • Not exactly though, Revere, Dawes, Prescott and others were told to be discrete about spreading the news (as to not get caught)

  17. Lexington and Concord • Colonists take-aways • “Holy cow we can do it!”, we actually won one of these battles • Reality check – “we really are unorganized and need to unite” • British take-aways • “Uh, oh. These colonists already gave us an early challenge – eek! We better take them a bit more seriously.” • “We are better, stronger, trained, and equipped! If we bring our “A” game we will win!” April 1775 Lexington (L) Concord (W) No real military advantage gained by either side But these are the FIRST SHOTS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY WAR

  18. We meet again… While warfare had officially began, the Patriots gave one last ditch effort to avoid a long war

  19. We meet again… And so the Second Continental Congress once again meets: 1775

  20. What did they accomplish? • Colonies/States set up local/state constitutions (that included how local government was to work, rights of “citizens” (similar to the Bill of Rights)) • Creation of the Continental Army (FINALLY) • Soldiers from all colonies formed the Continental Army • Trained, organized, equipped, uniformed • Named George Washington as the Commander in Chief of the Continental Army

  21. We meet again… Olive Branch Petition And so the Second Continental Congress once again meets: “That your Majesty may enjoy long and prosperous reign, and that your descendants may govern your Dominions with honour to themselves and happiness to their subjects, is our sincere prayer.” (Last sentence of the Olive Branch Petition) 1775 This is our final attempt at with you, KING…
