The Continental Congress was a governing body created by the American colonies to coordinate their resistance to British rule during the first two years of the American Revolution. The Continental Congress began in September 1774, as the government of the 13 British colonies. At a Gloucester town meeting on November 7, the committee was formed to “take care that the Association proposed by the Continental Congress be complied with and no way violated.” (Town Records, 153)
