12 SOME OF THIS….….AND SOME OF THAT

13 The Intolerable Acts threaten all the colonies Committees of Correspondence call for a Continental Congress Delegates from 12 out of 13 colonies come to Philadelphia in September of 1774

14 1) Reject plan for colonial union under England 2) Come up with Declaration of Grievances 3) Make military preparations for MA 4) Agree to a series of boycotts, enforced by the Continental Association 5) Agree to meet again in the spring of 1775

15 Lexington and Concord Farmers and townspeople had begun gathering weapons and ammo Train as Minutemen Can only respond to British aggression

16 British Commander in Boston is General Thomas Gage He believed that his army was too small to do anything significant He receives orders to arrest both Samuel Adams and John Hancock, and that they are in Lexington, MA He is also told that there is a stash of weapons in Concord, MA

17 Gage wants to avoid as much trouble and bloodshed as possible Decides to send 1,000 troops out of Boston on the evening of April 18 th, 1775 This is where the committees of correspondence come into play

18 The Midnight Riders Paul Revere, William Dawes, and Samuel Prescott The Regulars are coming Revere and Prescott are both apprehended; Dawes makes it the countryside and back

19 When the British arrive at Lexington there are roughly 70 minutemen waiting for them Quick fight, nothing that seems real significant, but this will ultimately be the first battle of the Revolution British will then march to Concord, but they don t find any weapons Set fire to the town, but they have no idea what is waiting for them

20 Minutemen have lined the roadways all the way back to Boston They will use guerilla warfare tactics on the British Chase British all the way back to Boston Lexington was basically a trap to set up the events at Concord

21 Meet again 3 weeks after Lexington and Concord Kind of split in terms of emotions- you have an extreme side (Sam Adams, John Adams) and a conservative side (John Dickinson) Olive Branch Petition (rejected) Begin to draft a Declaration of Independence Issue paper $ Create a Continental Army- appoint George Washington as commander No turning back at this point
