aug 1, 1774 - first VA Congress
The first Virginia congress was a meeting at the House of Burgesses held in Williamsburg, Virginia from August 1–6, 1774. The Convention declared its support for Massachusetts after the Tea act. It also called for the First Continental Congress. The convention banned financial transaction and payment of debts with Britain, pledged supplies to Massachusetts as well as other elected officers. This is good for me because I will not be burdened with paying debts to England in the form of higher taxes. Victory for colonists!
