Description

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” The "Declaration Committee" was appointed by Congress on June 11, 1776, to draft a declaration in anticipation of an expected vote in favor of American independence, a vote which then occurred on July 2. The earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson in June, 1776 and was then revised by John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and other members of the committee. The final text was formally adopted by Congress on the morning of July 4, 1776.

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” With this preamble, the 56 representative leaders in the Continental Congress of the Thirteen American Colonies, declared their independence from the British Empire of King George III to become the United States of America. “The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America” begins by describing the principles upon which it is based: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
