    The other picture is of Leslie Odom Jr., who played Aaron Burr in the Broadway play Hamilton.

    Good job Noob. You got 10 useless points. :thumbsup:

    1771, June 10



    Stroking his second chin in deep study of the nature of the light cascading down from the roof of the trees above, Peyton Randollph -- esteeemed, wealthy planter and official speaker of the House of Burgesses of the Colony of Virginia -- suddenly saw a rather peculiar change in the sky. He had been looking upwards, towards the constellation of Orion, and he saw a singular burst of light! - then a flare of red! Then an EXPLOSION of blue! Flabbergasted, he leaned out the side of the carriage to inch closer to the miracle he had witnessed. "Dear Lord, Peyton. Will you calm your ape-ish behavior? .. you've been spending time with your dreaded mother, haven't you?" Randolph, sitting back in his chair with a feeling of both exhilaration and anxiety, replied that he had not been spending time with his mother that was dreaded.

    1774, September 5

    Delegates of the congress, I want to thank you for voting me, Peyton Randolph of Virginia, the first President of the Continental Congress of these Colonies. We all know that tensions are high; the tea party really took a shot at the English! We should continue that attitude - see it to the end! - and make sure that the English realize that we have the power to severely impact the Empire!

    That being said, gentlemen (and women, if a female should join the participants of this story), I propose an agenda for this session:

    The Declaration of Rights

    In response to the Intolerable Acts placed upon the colony of Massachusetts (which is already causing the state to divide into two separate factions!), I propose a bill of our rights, how the English have offended them, and our ultimate action on seeking justice!

    Rights:
    None yet!

    Aims:
    Boycott English goods through the creation of the Committee of Safety in order to pressure them into our demands in representation and fair treatment. If they don't, then we will ban all exports to the Empire by September 1775.

    "Can I hear a yes or a no from the congress!"

    Yes:
    8
    Virginia, South Carolina, New York, Georgia, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, North Carolina

    No:
    0

    Yet To Vote:
    0


    The Votes
    "Here, here! I vote yes!" immediately called out delegate Jonathan Noobington. The last utterance out of Randolph had only just stopped flying past the furthest in the room.
    "For our liberty and for our children, I vote Yes." said delegate Leanders. At that point, it was clear the votes would be in total favor of this bill. If both New York and South Carolina agreed to a bill, Randolph would guess that any political, cultural, or economic differences would be irrelevant.
    "For our future! For our freedom! And for our lives! I vote Yea!" solidified the notion; the solidifying comment being spurted by Francis Fredrick, the divisive delegate of the western part of the colony of Massachusetts.

    "Yea, let it be so! Liberty! Freedom! Nu-Mantia!"
    "I'd rather be divisive than indecisive! I vote yes!"
    "I vote aye for a better tomorrow"
    several other delegates rang in their strong "yes", and North Carolina was the last to give a solid "Aye."

    Randolph: Alright, gentlemen of the congress! The bill passes without a single nay! Let us hope this is beneficial to our colonies - and our people. If you'll excuse me, gentlemen, I have to return home; to water my er.. Well I have to.. - I have to leave, you see! Anyways, nominate whoever you want to run the last few days of this term. My endorsement goes towards Henry Middleton.

    Second President:
    Henry Middleton - 1
    Philip Shuyler - 5

    I nominate Philip Schuyler (pronounced sky-ler) from New York. He is a great man and has the potential to do great things for our fledgling nation. I know that this would only be for a few days, but it is my strong belief that he is the best candidate to run our Continental Congress.

    Let me list off a few accomplishments of Mr. Schuyler
    1. Quartermaster for British troops in the French and Indian War in 1755, so he knows how logistics works and what it means to get supplies to their proper destination
    2. On the New York Assembly since 1768, so he knows how a legislative body works
    3. Has spoken out against the colonial government and spearheaded many issues on trade and currency, an issue sure to trouble any new nation.
    4. Has served as colonel in a militia, so he knows how to stay disciplined and has learned how a military is supposed to work.

    Anyone but Philip Schuyler is unfit for duty in the Continental Congress, that is why I support him.
