how did the first continental congress prepare the way for an armed uprising against Britain?
The First Continental Congress is largely seen as a stepping stone in American history both to the unity of the American colonies and eventually their opposition and gradual revolution against the British crown. It occurred in 1774 and was called in order to discuss the Intolerable Acts, which called for the highly unpopular taxation of goods within the US.
It is seen as the first official occasion when all thirteen colonies collectively opposed the legislation of the British government and petitioned for change in this legislation. The organization and unity of the congress was the beginning of America as an independent entity and the eventual armed opposition against Britain.
