Historyman presents: The Rowan Resolves

In 1774, the citizens of the Rowan county around Salisbury, NC once again put their signatures to a protest against the British Crown. They protested taxation without representation and declared that the African trade be discontinued. Freedom Reigns!

Historyman presents: The Pittsylvania, VA Resolves, January 26, 1775

The Pittsylvania Resolves come from the Danville, Chatham area of Virginia. These resolves were yet another in a series of statements across the colonies in support of the patriots in Boston. Pledging their lives and money to the cause of Liberty, they sealed their intentions with their signatures. Freedom Reigns!
