2.4.3

Events

Committees of Correspondence:

Samuel Adams, Joseph Warren, and Mercy Otis Warren of Massachusetts set up a Committee of Correspondence in response to the Gaspee Affair to coordinate colonial opposition to the British Parliament and advicate colonial rights. Similar committees are expected to spring up elsewhere. We can only hope that such committees will be constructive and harmonizing.

Gaspee Affair:

A group of Rhode Islanders, led by Abraham Whipple and John Brown, burn down a grounded British customs ship that had been enforcing the Navigation Act. These acts and taxation are unjust but such violence will only inflame a response. I fear a military response. -1 Relations with the UK.

Benjamin Franklin is Recognized as the Most Famous American:

Benjamin Franklin is the first American celebrity.

Boston Tea Party: 

The Sons of Liberty of Massachusetts, led by Samuel Adams, board a merchent ship and dump the entire cargo of British East India tea into Boston harbor. Such marvelous boldness! It's difficult to know if thisaction by the Sons of Liberty will have been reckless or righteous. We can expect consequenced by His Majesty King George III and his Parliament. Adams gains celebrity. -1 Relations with the UK.

 

Tea Act:

In an effort to help the British East India Company, British Parliament has enacted a Tea Act, which is certainly going to hurt the port-city merchants in the American Colonies. Furthermore, those desiring representation in Parliament see this as yet another list of unjust taxation. This does not bode well. Parliament must be tone deaf! Taxation on Sugar, Stamps, and now tea? We don't even get a voice to object or accept this taxation! -1 Relations with the UK.

Declaration of Resolves: 

Members of the Continental Congress are increasingly supporting a Declaration of Resolves to object to the Intolerable Acts and to outline a Colonial Bill of Rights. +1 relation with France.

Declaration of Resolves

Oliver Elsworth decided: "These intolerable acts focus mostly on Massachusetts. Why provoke Britain further over this?"

Continental Congress now votes:

Blues vote against the option as  it makes the biggest loss. Reds support because it hurts blues more than reds

The vote finalizes 4 Yes, 3 No, 6 split. 

As the Congress rejected Ellsworth decision, the other decision is adopted automatically. 

Let us state our grievances to the world and our intention to boycott British goods if the Intolerable Acts are not repealed

Gain +100: Big Corporation, Nationalists, Reformists, LW Activists, Human Rights.

Scandalous President

“President, they know about what we've been up to behind closed doors. The people know, the politicians, our allies...they all know. This isn't going to go away, so you need to consider your options here.”

-1 for Ellsworth in all future elections

 

Lexington and Concord

“"We must come to the aid of our sister colony Massachusetts (Continental Army proposal worth double pts)" - CC President Ellsworth

+ 250 Military industrial and w & order

 

Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations

“Scottish economist Adam Smith has released a groundbreaking on national economic productivity, labor, and free markets. The book is praised by most of our intellectuals. [Adam Smith's Wealth of Nation's helped define Smith as the "Father of Capitalism.”]”
