This Day in History: 1774 – The first session of the Continental Congress convenes at Carpenter’s Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Fact of the Day: The Continental Congress consisted of 56 delegates from every colony except Georgia. They drafted a declaration of rights and grievances in response to the British Parliament’s enactment of the Coercive Acts in the American colonies. The Coercive Acts would come to be known by colonists as the Intolerable Acts, and greatly contributed to the outset of the American Revolution.
Strange, but True: What is today known as the Declaration of Independence was drafted in 1775 by the Second Continental Congress. Surprisingly, the phrase “declaration of independence” was never actually used in the original document. Its original title is The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America.
