Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments
long established should not be changed for light
and transient causes We should be cautious,
and if a government has been around for a long
time, dont change it just because of some little
thing (or because of something that might change
back again in a few years.)

laws unless people gave up their democratic
rights.
NEW Millennium Edition
42
He has called together legislative bodies at
places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from
the depository of their public records, for the
sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance
with his measures. He has called legislative
bodies together hastily and in unusual places (so
that they would give in to his demands).
NEW Millennium Edition
43
He has dissolved representative houses
repeatedly, for opposing, with manly firmness,
his invasions on the rights of the people. He
has dissolved Legislatures for opposing him when
he tried to take away our rights.
7th Grade CLASS OF 2000 Mr. Peels
HistoryClassRoom.com SchoolNotes.com (60143)
NEW Millennium Edition
44
He has refused, for a long time after such
dissolutions, to cause others to be elected,
whereby the legislative powers, incapable of
annihilation, have returned to the people at
large for their exercise the state remaining, in
the meantime, exposed to all the dangers of
invasion from without and convulsions within.
After closing down our legislatures, he has
refused to let us elect a new one and our colony
was left unprotected.

He has endeavored to prevent the population of
these states for that purpose obstructing the
laws for naturalization of foreigners, refusing
to pass others to encourage their migration
hither, and raising the conditions of new
appropriations of lands. He has tried to keep
the colonies from growing by preventing
immigration and land ownership by immigrants.

jurisdiction foreign to our constitution and

For abolishing the free system of English laws in
a neighboring province, establishing therein an
arbitrary government, and enlarging its
boundaries, so as to render it at once an example
and fit instrument for introducing the same
absolute rule into these colonies he did away
with Canadas laws and enlarged Canadas
boundaries. He might try to take away our laws
too.
NEW Millennium Edition
59
For taking away our charters, abolishing our
most valuable laws, and altering, fundamentally,
the forms of our governments He took away our
charters and changed our form of Government
7th Grade CLASS OF 2000 Mr. Peels

laws for us.
NEW Millennium Edition
61

NEW Millennium Edition
63
He is at this time transporting large armies of
foreign mercenaries to complete the works of
death, desolation, and tyranny already begun with
circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely
paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and
totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.
He has hired armies of foreign soldiers
(Hessians) to fight us and then hell rule us
like a tyrant.
NEW Millennium Edition
64
He has constrained our fellow-citizens, taken
captive on the high seas, to bear arms against
their country, to become the executioners of
their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves
by their hands. American citizens, taken
prisoner at sea, have been forced to fight
against us. (Impressment)
NEW Millennium Edition
65
He has excited domestic insurrection among us,
and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of
our frontiers the merciless Indian savages, whose
known rule of warfare is an undistinguished
destruction of all ages, sexes, and conditions.
He's stirred up quarrels among us and tried to
get the Indians to kill all Americans on the
frontier.
7th Grade CLASS OF 2000 Mr. Peels
HistoryClassRoom.com SchoolNotes.com (60143)
NEW Millennium Edition
66
In every stage of these oppressions we have
petitioned for redress in the most humble terms
our repeated petitions have been answered only by
repeated injury. A prince whose character is thus
marked by every act which may define a tyrant is
unfit to be the ruler of a free people. When the
King has done something wrong, we asked him to
correct it and he only injures us more. A King
who acts like a tyrant is not fit to rule us.
NEW Millennium Edition
67
Nor have we been wanting in our attentions to our
British Brethren. We have warned them, from time
to time, of attempts by their legislature to
extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We
have reminded them of the circumstances of our
emigration and settlement here. We have appealed
to their native justice and magnanimity and we
have conjured them, by the ties of our common
kindred, to disavow these usurpations, which
would inevitably interrupt our connections and
correspondence. They, too, have been deaf to the
voice of justice and consanquinity. We must,
therefore, acquiesce in the necessity which
denounces our separation, and hold them, as we
hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in
peace, friends.
NEW Millennium Edition
68
Weve asked the people of Great Britain to speak
out against what Parliament and the King have
been doing to us. They havent listened to us
either. Well just have to figure that if
theres a war, theyll be our enemies. If theres
peace, theyll be our friends.
NEW Millennium Edition
69
We, therefore, the representatives of the United
States of America, in General Congress,
assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the
world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in
the name and by the authority of the good people
of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare,
That these united colonies are, and of right
ought to be, free and independent states that
they are absolved from all allegiance to the
British crown, and that all political connection
between them and the state of Great Britain is,
and ought to be, totally dissolved and that, as
free and independent states, they have full power
to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances,
establish commerce, and to do all other acts and
things which independent states may of right do.
And, for the support of this declaration with a
firm reliance on the protection of Divine
Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our
lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.

We, the representatives of the United States,
knowing that God is our judge, declare that these
colonies are free and independent states. WERE
FREE! We can depend on Gods protection. In
support of this declaration we pledge our lives,
our fortunes, and our sacred honor.
