    The British king and parliament expected the colonists to obey British law. Colonial point of view: Each colony had created their own laws and their own constitution.

Each colony created an elected assembly of colonial representatives.   The first major American opposition to British policy came in after Parliament passed the Stamp Act, a taxation measure to raise revenues for a standing British .

      On Octo , King George III speaks before both houses of the British Parliament to discuss growing concern about the rebellion . The townshend acts. A series of taxes on colonial products such as glass, paint, lead, paper, and tea which were designed to raise money to pay the governors and judges in the colonies so they would remain loyal to the king of England. The Tea Act.

    The delegates also recommended that the colonies raise militias, lest the British respond to the Congress’s proposed boycott of British goods with force. While the colonists still considered themselves British subjects, they were slowly retreating from British authority, creating their own de facto government via the First Continental Congress. Liberty is the greatest blessing that men enjoy, and slavery the heaviest curse that human nature is capable of.

The safety resulting from society, and the advantage of just and equal laws, hath caused men to forego.
