On April 15, 1775 Charles McCall signed with the other jurors the following presentment:

"We present as an enormous grievance the power exercised by the British Parliament of taxing and making laws, binding upon the American Colonies in all cases whatsoever, such power being subversive of the most inestimable rights of British subjects, that of being taxed by their consent only, given by their Representatives in General Assembly, and that of trial by jury, both of which are evidently inherent in every British American, and of which no power on earth can deprive them. We, well knowing the importance of these rights in securing to us our liberties, lives and estates, and concerning it to be every man's indispensable duty to transmit them to his posterity, we are full determined to defend them at the hazard of our lives."
