  • John Adams: Olive Branch Petition

    Has profanity
    After the colonists sent the Olive Branch Petition to King George, they received a response known as the Proclamation of Rebellion. John Hancock reads the Proclamation, which declared some elements of the colonies in a state of rebellion. It served as a warning for those who were not loyal to the king and left the colonists less convinced that the king would resolve their disputes with England, leading to a movement towards declaring independence.
