Second Cotinental Congress The First Continental Congress adjourns on 26 October 1774, but delegates resolve to reconvene in May 1775 if Parliament does not address their grievances. Delegates return to their respective colonies and play a vital role in ensuring that Congress's mandates are implemented. In London, Parliamentary factions debate the merits of offering concessions to the colonies, although the British ministry takes no official notice of Congress's petitions and addresses. On 30 November 1774, "the die is cast" when King George III opens Parliament with a speech condemning Massachusetts and the Suffolk Resolves. It is clear that Congress will need to meet again. War breaks out in Massachusetts on 19 April 1775. Congress resolves to prepare for war but continues to seek reconciliation. Petitions and declarations stir up patriotic sentiment, but that alone will not win the war. On 14 June, Congress creates a continental army and appoints George Washington commander-in-chief.

They settled in what is now the state of Virginia and called their colony first James Fort, and then James Towne, in honor of James I, the King of England. The early years of the colony were nearly a total disaster. Almost half of the settlers died due to poor choices in settlement location, management of resources, and quarrels with the indigenous Powhatan Indians.
