First Continental Congress

All colonies delegates, except for Georgia, attended the first continental congress and met in the Carpenters Hall in Philadelphia on the dates of September 5 through October 26, 1774. Colonies presented that they were united in a determination to show a combined authority to Great Britain. Their Arms weren't uniform at all. Pennsylvania and New York sent delegates with firm instructions to seek a resolution with England. Those who attended were Colonial George Washington, Richard Henry lee, Patrick Henry, Edmund Pendleton, Colonial Benjamin Harrison, Richard Bland, and Peyton Randolph. On October 14, the Declaration and Resolves established the course of congress. The Intolerable Acts were informed to the colonists before the shots at Lexington and Concord were fired and the colonies attempted to settle the concerns and frustrations raised
