The Second Continental Congress

Library Binding (Compass Point Books Jan. 1, 2008)
Formed in 1775 after the start of the Revolutionary War, the Second Continental Congress was the governing body that represented the thirteen American Colonies as they fought to win independence from Great Britain. It organized an army, printed money, and drafted many important documents, including the Declaration of Independence and the Articles of Confederation. At the conclusion of the war, the Second Continental Congress was responsible for rejecting a monarchy in favor of a representative form of democracy for the new country. The decisions made by the Second Continental Congress helped form the America the world knows today.
