The members of the Second Continental Congress were a less cautious bunch than the delegates to the First CC. Militants had taken many of the conservative places. Fighting had started and the Second Continental Congress agreed to appoint George Washington as commander of the colonial troops around Boston. He would become Commander of all the continental forces. Not yet ready to declare independence, they issued a "Declaration of the Cause and Necessity of Taking up Arms" in 1775. By June, it appeared that independence was gaining popularity and Richard Henry Lee of Virginia introduced the resolution for independence from Great Britain. The Congress appointed a committee to form the Declaration of Independence, with most of the work done by Thomas Jefferson. The Congress then adopted the Declaration, acted as the government for the colonies during the war, raised an army and navy, approved the creation of the Articles of Confederation, and negotiated the peace with Great Britain

The Second Continental Congress managed the colonial war effort, and moved incrementally towards independence, adopting the United States Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776. By raising armies, directing strategy, appointing diplomats, and making formal treaties, the Congress acted as the de facto national government of what became the United States. They met on May 10, 1775, in Philadelphia, PA.
