The Declaration of Independence is the usual name of a statement adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, which announced that the thirteen American colonies, then at war with Great Britain, regarded themselves as 13 newly independent sovereign states, and no longer a part of the British Empire. Instead they formed a new nation—the United States of America. John Adams was a leader in pushing for independence, which was unanimously approved on July 2. A committee had already drafted the formal declaration, to be ready when Congress voted on independence. The term "Declaration of Independence" is not used in the document itself.

    By BigMacAD
    What a great document. What vision our founding fathers had. What sacrifice they made to give us the freedom we now enjoy. I am so proud to be an American and so proud of the legacy these men and women left us. This document is proof that we are the greatest country in the world! May all our founding fathers and patriots Rest In Peace knowing many still believe in the America they founded!

  • Must read

    By Bpecoraro
    Every American should read this at least once a year. The Fourth of July would be a good day to read. To many take the freedoms they fought for for granted. We need to remain grateful for this great country and fortunate to be citizens of it.
