The Declaration of Independence was composed on July fourth 1776, written by Thomas Jefferson and adopted by the Second Continental Congress. The Declaration of Independence was written to give the world a notice of its new found freedom, especially to King George III of England. Everyone is created equal and there are certain rights that governments should never violate such as, the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If governments do not uphold these rights it is the peoples duty to expel the tyrannical government. The colonies had suffered 27 abuses and usrpations from King George III of England. Twelve of the 27 involved the establishment of tyrannical

authority in place of representative government. The King destroyed the colonists' right to self-rule. The last of the abuses were the actions the King took to abandon the colonies and wage war against them. Colonists only used non- violent means up until the declaration.
