The Unanimous Declaration of the Congress of the United States, more commonly known as the Declaration of Independence, was and is a profound document. Written largely by Thomas Jefferson (although John Adams and Ben Franklin certainly helped), it sparked the American War for Independence. In proud and defiant tones, it spells out what our Founding Fathers believed what their rights were, and how King George III was either ignoring them or abusing them. Such a document had never been written before in the history of mankind. The preamble addresses what the representatives to the Continental Congress held to be true. These colonists felt that they had not just the right, but the God-given duty to alter their system of governance. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. That among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." Just reading those lines gives me goosebumps. The Founding Fathers wrote the Declaration of Independence to declare that they were a free people, shaking loose the bands of tyranny from the mother country. It was a message to Great Britain, to their fellow colonists and to the world at large that it was time to take notice. It was a call to arms and open revolution, thousands of men would be needed to take up muskets and fight for their freedom. The Declaration also spelled out some criticisms of His Majesty, King George III. Calling him a despot, a tyrant and unfit to be the ruler of a free people (ouch!). The 56 men who signed the Declaration knew that they were picking a fight with the mightiest army on the face of the earth. They were also signing their own death warrants. The Declaration concludes with a statement that "and, for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance of the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor." This one page of parchment stated that thirteen colonies were now free and independent states. But, England was not about to let thirteen of her most prized possessions go without a fight. The gauntlet had been thrown down in challenge, now it was time to act and deliver on those revolutionary principles.

Let's look for a moment at just the opening paragraph of the Declaration of Independence:

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

First, the British colonies immediately refer to themselves as "the thirteen United States of America."

Second, the drafters suggest that they have the right to separate themselves from the parent.

Finally, the drafters state that they are not only separate but equal as well.

How dare they?

Never before in the history of the world had anyone questioned the authority of a monarch, and none had ever suggested separating themselves from one. As a result, the monarch, King George, sent his most powerful asset to deal with the insolence. This led to the colonists picking up weapons and proving that they were what they claimed, separate and equal.
