A Proclamation by the King

On October 27, 1775, King George III spoke before both houses of the British Parliament to discuss the growing concern about the rebellion in America, which he viewed as a traitorous action against himself and Great Britain. He began his speech by reading a “Proclamation of Rebellion” and urged Parliament to move quickly to end the revolt and bring order to the colonies. This royal proclamation is a response to increasing hostilities in the American colonies. I wrote it in Centennial for the blog.
