Tenth Amendment Center: The Struggle for American Independence: The Second Continental Congress

In this episode, I cover the developments of the British government at the beginning of 1775, the Battle of Bunker Hill, and the formation of the Second Continual Congress.

Far from adopting the Tory perspective in London, Edmund Burke proposed a series of provisions that would end hostilities with the American colonies by providing representation in Parliament and apologizing for constitutional violations. Just as the Continental Army was formed with Washington at its head, a new battle broke out in Boston – the Battle of Bunker Hill. Far from empathizing with the petitions of the Second Continental Congress, King George III responded by declaring the colonies in open and avowed rebellion to the crown.
