The Declaration Of

     The Declaration of Independence includes four parts. The first part is the Preamble, which explains why the Continental Congress drew up the Declaration. They felt their reason should be explained to England.

The Purpose of Government is to Protect Basic Rights
     This section is about the basic unalienable rights that every human should have life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are some of the rights that are talked about in this section. It also talks about how some people have the right to overthrow an unjust government. It states that government should not be changed for light or unimportant reasons. An
example of just reason would be if a government was destructive in any way. Another reason would be if a government took away our basic rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Wrongs Done By The King
     In the third section of the Declaration Of Independence states all the wrongs the people thought the king of England did to them. The colonists thought the king was treating them unfairly. For example he refused to approve laws that would help the colonists. He also made them pay taxes without their consent along with forbidding trade with other countries. They tried to talk to the king about their complaints but he ignored them. All of this made the colonists very angry. In this section the colonists write that they have had it with Britain’s Tyranny Rule.

Declaration Of Independence
     In the fourth and last section of the Declaration Of Independence. The colonies clearly state that they are free, independent states able to declare war, make peace, contract alliances, and trade with whomever they want and do or make any decisions that any independent states do. It also states that all political connections with Great Britain no longer exist! They are now saying they are the “United States of America”.
