George Washington said, “John, you talk too much!”

by on March 31, 2011


John Adams is talking about April of 1774 when the 1st Continental Congress was held. Its purpose was to unite the colonies and to get ready for war should there be war. The colonists were to start collecting weapons and gunpowder. A message was sent to the King demanding changes.

John Adams is talking again! This time explaining that a committee of 5 was formed to write the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson did most of the writing with some help from Benjamin Franklin and John Adams. The Declaration was approved on July 2, 1776, and adopted on July 4, 1776.

John Adams continued talking by explaining that Congress set to work on forming rules for a central government. This set of rules was called the Articles of Confederation.

Dear Actors,
I wish you could stay longer but you can’t. I wish you could tell more. You gave me more information. I had learned more about the taxes for the war. You look like the people in the old times.

Dear Mr. President Madison and President Adams,
I wish I was there to see the play you showed the class. I asked my friends about it they said it was cool. I bet it was cool. I also heard you were very good at acting and it was realistic. I so wish I was there! I’ve seen your pictures. You both look very lifelike.

Dear Actors,
I loved the play because I learned a lot about everybody. You guys spoke clearly and everyone spoke loud enough that everyone heard you. You guys are great. You pretty much knew everything but not everything, but enough to help us. Well, I was just saying that you guys did tell me a lot. And you guys are GREAT.
Thank You!
Thank You!
From Louis
