Overview

The Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson, United States

The United States Declaration of Independence is a statement adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, announcing that the thirteen American colonies then at war with Great Britain were no longer a part of the British Empire. Written primarily by Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration is a formal explanation of why Congress had voted on July 2 to declare independence from Great Britain, more than a year after the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War. The birthday of the United States of America—Independence Day—is celebrated on July 4, the day the wording of the Declaration was approved by Congress.

It's the Declaration of Independence, what can I say? Too many Americans THINK they know why we separated from England, but unfortunately, our education system doesn't tell students the WHOLE story. This should be required reading for middle and high school students.
