Integrity is having strong morals, and always doing the right thing although no one agrees or is watching. John Dickinson has integrity. His defense of the proprietary government in 1764 as a member of the Pennsylvania assembly, lost him some popularity but showed his integrity. In 1771, he drew a petition which was unanimously signed to the king of England. In the second continental congress, he drew up the declaration of the causes of taking up arms. After being kicked out, in 1776, he advised the delegates to look to redress grievances. This man always kept his integrity.
