"Sit Down John" - 1776

Context: The scene/song is from the musical 1776, where John Adams expresses his frustrations with the inactivity of the Continental Congress to break its ties with Britain after everything that they have been through.

Consider this: How does this scene from 1776 challenge the typical view that the Continental Congress was united in wanting to declare independence?
