What are “the Prince William Resolves?” In the summer of 1774, the Virginia Colony was reeling from the news from Boston, Massachusetts. In response to the Boston Tea Party in December 1773, the British government had passed the Coercive Acts, known in the colonies as the “Intolerable Acts.” Prince William County became the first County in Virginia to formally protest these Acts, meeting on June 6, 1774 to pass the “Prince William Resolves.”
