  • First Continental Congress
    Formally denounced Intolerable Acts
    Set up a “Plan of Union”
    56 delegates from 12 colonies (no GA)
  • Set Up
    After the Coercive Acts: King George III made General Thomas Gage Governor of Mass.
    Gage was also Commander in Chief of all British forces in America
    Moved Mass. Capital from Boston to Salem and dissolved the colony’s congress
    Many people fled Boston
    Gage captured stores of hidden patriot guns/powder
    Arrested Sons of Liberty leaders: Sam Adams and John Hancock
    Sons of Liberty expected this and started practicing loading their muskets – became known as Minutemen
  • Shot Heard ‘Round the World - Lexington
    Paul Revere was on watch for British troop movements
    April 18, 1775: British began moving towards Lexington, Revere left to warn Adams and Hancock (Revere would be caught and arrested)
    77 minutemen got ready at Lexington
    British tried to just march past them, but a random shot was fired
    British troops broke formation and started shooting
    8 Minutemen dead
  • Concord
    British troops had sent some guys ahead and took control of Salem Bridge
    Minutemen attacked them and the bridge was unguarded
    As British troops crossed the bridge, Minutemen hiding began shooting at them
    73 British died, 174 wounded
    These are significant because: war had not yet been declared, but this was an unofficial start to the war
