For earlier ones: Part I; Part II; Part III.] * * * * * The reaction of the North Ministry to the destruction of tea in Boston Harbor in was swift. Aided by British public opinion hostile to the actions of the Bostonians and the desire.

The Provincial Congress established a Committee of Safety with the power to "alarm, muster, and cause to be assembled" the militia, when necessary. This Committee was also empowered to appoint new militia commandeers, while the men of each militia company were encouraged to elect new officers, if they had not already done so. The First Continental Congress was a meeting of delegates from 12 of the 13 British colonies that became the United States. It met from September 5 to Octo at Carpenters' Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania after the British Navy instituted a blockade of Boston Harbor and Parliament passed the punitive Intolerable Acts in response to the December Boston Tea .

In April , Joseph was elected president of the Massachusetts Provincial Congress and the Committee of Safety, to replace the absent John Hancock. With little money or resources, he was faced with the challenges of a rapidly evolving revolutionary political and military climate. Daniel Leonard () was a lawyer and devoted loyalist. He lived in Taunton, Massachusetts, and was a member of one of the leading and wealthiest families in the commonwealth. In , he was forced to flee his home by his Whig neighbors. He found refuge in Boston and eventually Nova Scotia and England.
