Question

Put the following related to the American Revolution in chronological order.

at Lexington and Concord, the Second Continental Congress refuses to declare independence until after an olive branch is offered to the king. When he refuses, Thomas Jefferson drafts a declaration separating the American colonies from Britain.

B. Seeing the effect of the Coercive (Intolerable) Acts on Boston, the other colonies band together and promise to protect one another by forming the First Continental Congress. 

C. Great Britain incurs huge debts fighting the French both in the Americans and in Europe during the 7 Years (French and Indian) War. 

D. Strapped for cash, Parliament passes the Sugar and Stamp Acts on their colonies, ultimately ending salutary neglect and incurring the wrath of American colonists. Ultimately they are repealed.
