Meet both of them and find out what role they played in the American Revolution.

A COLONIAL MEETING OF MINDS: THE FIRST CONTINENTAL CONGRESS
The British Parliament has passed a series of laws called the Coercive Acts. In addition to closing Boston’s port, Parliament has placed the Massachusetts government under royal control and ordered colonists to quarter, or house, and feed British soldiers.
