Rhode Island[edit]

I am going to leave the most recent edit by Reese1031 as it is, but I would like to see the article changed to reflect Rhode Island's participation, and a reference provided for same. If this is not done, I will revert to the previous version which indicates that Rhode Island did not participate in the First Continental Congress. ---RepublicanJacobiteThe'FortyFive' 17:55, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

# of Delegates[edit]

56 or 55? This website says fifty-five: http://www.u-s-history.com/pages/h650.html it's 56 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Siddharth9200 (talkcontribs) 02:52, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

How did the First Continental Congress make war with Britain more likely?[edit]

I want this question to be answered short —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.110.251.182 (talk) 00:04, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Deputies from N. Carolina[edit]

Reference to the Journals of The Continental Congress 1774-1789, Vol I, page 30.

As recorded, that on this date, September 14, 1774, the two deputies from North Carolina, William Hooper and Joseph Hewes, Esqrs. attended the Congress and produced their credentials.

The article would lead one to believe that all the delegates were present as of September 5, 1774. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.49.66.19 (talk) 14:07, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Accomplishments[edit]

Another major accomplishment seems to be missing, namely the Declaration of Colonial Rights and Grievances. Is there any particular reason why it was not included? Otherwise, it really should be added. --Polymatheia (talk) 10:55, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
