  • 9/22/1768 – The Convention 📝 . Few things are quite so Boston as good old-fashioned insurrection and infighting 🤘🏻. While today in 1768 was hardly the first instance of either, it proved itself to be a critical step on the road to revolution ⚔️ . By the time that 96 Massachusetts towns met up at Faneuil Hall on September 22, 1768, most of its delegates had already seen a striking blow to their rights and camaraderie. Earlier that winter, Governor Francis Bernard forced the general assembly to dissolve after it trash-talked the tax-raising 💸 Townshend Acts. This made for a series of riots throughout the spring that got so Boston that Bernard called in the redcoats from London 🇬🇧. . “Why listen to my constituents when I can get an army to shut ‘em up?” said every effective, popular politician ever. 🙃 . Faced with the reality that the Brits were on their way for more than tea and crumpets, local leaders called to order the Massachusetts Convention of Towns. Most of the delegation consisted of the same legislature that had been forced to dissolve that winter. When they diplomatically asked Bernard’s OK to meet in peace and he refused, they continued the convention, which made it illegal, which made it more than a little badass ☠️ . The group immediately broke into 2️⃣ factions. The militant one, led by Samuel Adams and James Otis, Jr. made a call to arms: meet the Brits at the water and start shooting 🌊🔫. But Chairman Thomas Cushing allied himself with delegates from the rural parts of the colony, whose constituents had demanded to keep them out of trouble. Adams, Otis, and their allies fought the good fight, but they knew they couldn’t beat the Reds without backup. Moderation won the day 😒 . Though it didn’t end the way Adams wanted, this convention, the decision to stand down, and the subsequent Occupation of Boston – which we’ll get to – ultimately played a pivotal role in uniting the colonies around the patriot cause. They may not have wanted to go to war yet, but 96 towns don’t send reps to an extralegal convention about the current regime without a spark of rebellion in their hearts 🇺🇸
