On May 5, 1775 representatives from the thirteen colonies (56 men in totally) met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – this was called the Second Continental Congress.
They had one meeting prior to this in September 1774. It brought together all the leaders from the thirteen colonies.
But they were divided and couldn’t come to a unified plan:
Those from the northern colonies (New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and etc..) wanted to create a treaty (an agreement) with Great Britain. They wanted to remain part of the British Monarchy, without having to go through a revolution.
Those from the southern colonies (Virginia, Carolina, Georgia) wanted 100% separation from Great Britain, even if it meant going to war.
Review the Declaration of Independence and the Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen in groups of three – discuss how the Declaration of Independence was a lot like the Declaration of the Rights of Manand how it was different.
