The First Continental Congress met in 1774 to discuss what the colonies should do in response to the Coercive Acts, which were a set of laws which provided punishment to the colonists as a result of the Boston Tea Party. In the end delegates passed and signed the Continental Association, which called for a boycott of British goods to take effect in December 1774.
