Declaration of IndependenceIn Congress, July 4,
1776The Unanimous Declaration of the
ThirteenUnited States of America
Created by Mr. Steve Hauprich for acceleration
and remediation of US History students
  • Dear American Colonists, supportive British
    Whigs,
  • and potential European Allies

When in the course of human events, it becomes
necessaryfor one people to dissolve the
political bondswhich have connected them with
another,
3
and to assume, among the powers of the earth,the
separate and equal stationto which the laws of
nature and of natures Godentitle them,
4
a decent respect to the opinions of
mankindrequires that they should declare the
causeswhich impel them to the separation.
5
We hold these truths to be self evident That
all men are created equal
6
that they are endowed by their Creator with
certain unalienable rights
7
that among these are life, liberty,
and the pursuit of happiness
8
that, to secure these rights, governments are
instituted among men,
9
deriving their just powers from the consent of
the governed
10
that whenever any form of government becomes
destructive to these ends,
11
it is the right of the people to alter or abolish
it,and to institute new government,
12
laying its foundation on such principles, and
organizing its powers in such form,as to them
shall seem most likelyto effect their safety and
happiness.
13
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments
long established should not be changed for
lightand transient causes

exists along with the right to a fair trial
16
1689 English Bill of Rightsincludes the right
to petition,private property protections, and
the right to bear arms
17
and accordingly all experience hath shown that
mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils
are sufferable,than to right themselves by
abolishing the formsto which they are accustomed.
18
But when a long train of abuses and
usurpations,pursuing invariably the same
object,evinces a design to reduce themunder
absolute despotism,
19
it is their right, it is their duty,to throw off
such government,

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.
