The Declaration of Independence: cry for freedom.
The Declaration of Independence was a desperate “cry for freedom”. The British colonist had lived in the territory of America for several years , and they had grown there to being their own bosses in many ways. They thought that the British Parliament and its king George III, were making a lot of laws that took away too many of their freedom. This included new taxes of which Americans hadn’t voted. Seeing that they hadn’t even elected the members of Parliament who had passed those laws, they said many times “ taxation without representation”. Although people in Britain could protest and choose not to reelect the people who voted for those taxes, the Americans didn’t have that option. In one serious set of set of acts, which the Americans called the Intolerable Acts, the British closed the port of Boston. Those Intolerable Acts made very angry the American people. A group of delegates from 13 colonies, meeting in the Continental Congress, wanted to boycott British goods throughout colonies. After one year, the Revolutionary War had begun. British and American, with their storm trooper, fought over the 13 colonies and also in Canada. Many people needed a rallying cry, something they could all fight for. In 1776, while the troops were fighting in the field, more delegates were meeting in Philadelphia and out of it came the Declaration of Independence. In this way the delegates wanted to declare themselves independent from Great Britain. The document was written by five people and it was approved and signed on 4 July.
