I find it interesting that Thomas Paine or his book Common Sense is not mentioned anywhere. I don't see how anyone can talk about the revolution, Declaration or Constitution without including Paine somewhere. He surly had more of an impact on the creation of this Nation than some who actually signed the Declaration.

Declaration of Independence The Declaration of Independence’s intent or its purpose is telling you what a good citizen should and shouldn’t do. It also tells what our country is all about. I think that John Hancock really put his time and effort into talking about our country and how not and how to be a good citizen. Its meaning is what some of the people went through bringing this country together and what George Washington did for us. It talks about how they fought for our freedom and to be our own country. The Declaration of Independence is important because John Hancock and George Washington took a lot of time to write it. If it wasn’t for them and all of the other men who fought in the Revolutionary war, we probably would still be owned by England so I am very grateful.

I honestly thought it rather seemingly impoossible to get everything they asked for. honestly like how in the world do they expect to keep everyone happy forever under those conditions? especially beacuse life changes and they had to know it won't be 1776 forever. and that it will someday be as it is now 2008. I also wonder why if people are so upset with our government why don't they overthrow the government and try to make a new one? people have the power to do that according to the constitution so why in the world aren't they? instead of putting Buish down. and making a liar out of almost all of our presidents, take it to the higher power. change the government. isn't that what america was built on? change. just plain change. and now 200 and more years later we have lost the desire to change and become better. we are in a rut. and call me nieve, but i believe that america is just gonna go back into a dark period if we don't do something about this loss of interest now and fast. that's all... i'm done ranting... -angie-

I think this document is amazing but people are starting to forget what it states. They need to go back and reread what our founding fathers wrote and signed in agreement. The united states need to be the way that our founding fathers intended it, which it is not right now. Someone needs to stick to the declaration or we are in store for a down fall in our country.

I have always loved learning about the Revolutionary War it's my favorite thing in American history. Yet, I had never read the Declaration Of Independence until now. I still haven't read the Constitution, but the reason for not reading them is because I knew I wouldn't understand what they had written. Now I know I can read the Constitution since I get the meaning of the Declaration. The reason for the declaration was to show th British that they were going to make their own laws, their own taxes, and were going to establish their own Government. Plus Britain was not going to take over again, because they already lost the war, so whats the point of starting another war if you were to lose again. The importance of writing The Declaration Of Independence was to prove a point to America that we are now and will always be a free country and nobody an take that away from us. When they established Congress, Presidential Power, and The House Of Representatives they knew that they would have a very strong Government to take care of the country. But what they didn't know was how long this Democracy would last. It has lasted for approx. 200 yrs. That is a really long time for a government to under go minute changes. (such as us) When they established it they also didn't really know how good it would do i about 100 years from their time, well, it actually has gotten a lot greater than they probably they thought it would get. Which is a very good sign of ever lasting Democracy. -T.Secrist

I have found that most people are unaware of the actual text of this document, myself included. We all know the gist of it, we kind of know what it says. Most of us can quote at least some part of it. It would be a very good thing for all of us to reacquaint ourselves with it. There seems there are some eire, and disquieting similarities to the current plight we find ourselves in. It seems there are some that would set themselves up as King. We as a people of this Great nation must hold those that would seek public office, within any branch of our government to honor and defend these self-evident truths contained within, as must we all. We need to strengthen our resolve as a people to fight against the heartless tyranny that is struggling to hold us in its death grip. We CAN live up to the promise of greatness set forth in this document. To achieve this we all need to understand that the pursuit of your own personal happiness, or that of a particular group should not and can not be allowed to deny the rights of life or liberty to others. Profit above all else is most unhealthy for the mind, body, and soul, of the individual and for society as a whole. We must demand honesty, integrity, and accountability, from ourselves as individuals, and from our government and business leaders to this beautiful, amazing land of opportunity called the United States of America. We are only as great as we are good I would like to express my thanks to those put up and maintain this site. Good life and good health to you all

I am preparing a book with the preliminary title: Our Founding Fathers were Assholes Carter Braxton was a founding father. Some notes: Braxton, Carter to Nicholas Brown & Co.; February 1, 1763 Though most of the Brown brothers trading activities were directed to the Caribbean, they also traded with mainland colonies. A voyage to Virginia by the sloop Four Brothers in 1763 touched off a correspondence between the Browns and Carter Braxton, a Virginia merchant and future signer of the Declaration of Independence, who proposed working together to mount a slaving voyage to Africa. "I am told there is a great Traid carried on from Rhode Island to Guinea for Negroes," Braxton wrote in this letter of February 1, 1763, "and I should be glad to enter into Partnership with some Gentlemen for a Voyage or two and have [the Negroes] sent here where I believe they sell as well as any where." The Browns initially seemed receptive to the offer, but ultimately decided to mount an African venture independently. Braxton, Carter to Nicholas Brown & Co.; October 16, 1763, continuing discussion of a possible joint African slaving venture. "I shall be very glad to be concerned in the Affrican Trade and will be a fourth of the Voyage if you Choose it," Braxton writes. The balance of the letter offers information on the local market for slaves in Virginia. "Gold Coast Slaves are Esteemed the most Valuable + Sell best," Braxton writes, adding: The Prices of Negroes keep up amasingly." For reasons that are unclear, the Browns did not pursue the partnership, and instead launched the Sally independently. Nicholas Brown & Co. to Braxton, Carter; September 5, 1763: "You Mention of being Concerned in the Guine Trade and that the Vessels Return with the negrows to your place," the Browns write. "[A]s we Shall be Largely Concerned in Navigation this Fall which will bring millo. [molasses] in the Spring and we Living in a place wair we Can procure a Large Quantity of Rum Distilled Amediately, its Very Likely if it's Agreeable to you to be Concerned that we May Fitt a proper Vessill for Guiney in the Spring..." In the event, the Browns did send the Sally to Africa in 1764, but they did so without Braxton. 1764 -- Nicholas Brown & Company needed capital in 1764 to buy supplies for their candle works, as well as for their newest venture, an iron furnace.  With slave labor in high demand throughout the Americas, an African voyage promised a quick and substantial profit. The initial venture with Carter Braxton, a Virginian merchant, [9, 10, & 11] fell through and the Brown brothers proceeded by themselves. In the end, they hired Esek Hopkins, a naval veteran of the Seven Year’s War (the French and Indian War in colonial North America) who would later be appointed commander-in-chief of the Continental Navy in 1775.  In 1764, a one-hundred ton brigantine called the Sally embarked from Providence, Rhode Island, to West Africa on a slaving voyage. The ship was owned by Nicholas Brown and Company, a Providence merchant firm run by four brothers Nicholas, John, Joseph, and Moses Brown. The Sally's voyage was one of roughly a thousand transatlantic slaving ventures launched by Rhode Islanders in the colonial and early national period, and one of the deadliest. Of the 196 Africans acquired by the ship's master, Esek Hopkins, at least 109 perished, some in a failed insurrection, others by suicide, starvation, and disease. In 1770, the Rev. Samuel Hopkins preached his first sermon against slavery and the slave trade, calling them terrible sins. His message surprised church members, some of them slave traders. One family left the church. 1775 -- However, Braxton did not share the same zeal for freedom from England as did his colleagues. He was convinced that a possible civil war was far more dangerous than democracy. Braxton was chosen on December 15, 1775 to succeed Peyton Randolph as delegate to the Continental congress when Randolph died in October 1775, and took his seat in February 1776. Eloquently, he took to the floor of Congress to air his opposition to a hasty and complete break from England. Carter Braxton is known as the most conservative signer of the Declaration of Independence from Virginia. Braxton opposed independence until there seemed little choice but to break from Briton.

Carter Braxton is known as the most conservative signer of the Declaration of Independence from Virginia. Braxton opposed independence until there seemed little choice but to break from Briton.account of the depreciation of the currency 1784 -- The first act calling for the freeing of slaves in Rhode Island came in 1784. But the General Assembly did not want it done quickly. Under the act, children born to slave mothers after March 1, 1784 would be free when they became adults. The law, says Nadalin, "required no real sacrifice on the part of the slave owners, and it did nothing to curb the actual trade in slaves." 1786 -- He never recovered, and, in 1786, was forced to leave his inherited country estate for simple quarters in Richmond. Braxton accumulated a great deal of debt from the war and never recovered financially. He was forced to sell his estate in 1786 and move to a smaller residence ("row-house") in Richmond. The latter days of Mr. Braxton were embittered by several unfortunate commercial speculations, which involved him in pecuniary embarrassments, from which he found it impossible to extricate himself. Several vexatious law-suits, in which he became engaged, contributed still farther to diminish his property, and unfortunately led him unintentionally to injure several of his friends, who were his sureties. The morning of his days was indeed bright; but, like many a morning which appears in the natural world without clouds, his was followed, towards the close of the day, by clouds and darkness, under which he sunk, imparting an impressive lesson of the passing nature of the form and fashion of the present world.

This is one of the greatest historical documents ever written. You have to remember, all of the signers could have been killed for treason agianst The Royal Crown. I don't think the people of today take this document with as much gravity and seriousness as they should. I sometimes wonder what the founding fathers would think of this country and the way it is run today. Would they approve? I wonder if this is what Thomas Jefferson invisioned when he sat down and wrote out this historic document? I am very glad for the freedom he and all the others gave us though.

The American Declaration of Independence is a great American Document.
To Mr Feinberg (in response to your query as to why G Washington did not sign the Declaration): The American army had been in conflict with the British army for approx 15 months prior to the declaring of independence from Great Britian in July of 1776. Washington was concerned with military matters, having to guard against 10,000 British troops under General Howe, so he was coordinating things in the defenses around NY/NJ. He also, being military, was subordinate by political nature to the legislators, so it probably was not proper for him to sign. Kudos to the web site designers. It's a valuable history resource.

The Declaration of Independence is beautifully....it was clearly well thought out for the present time, and for the future.
Gimli, Hi [02-04-2008]
I know a lot about the Declaration of Independence and I think that it is such a cool idea!
Was a complete surpise to find that George Washing did not sign the Declaration of Independence. Thought he would be the first. Can you expand on this as to why?

The Declaration of Independence is amazing....it was clearly well thought out for the present time, and for the future. 'That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." I have to say, I love that. Reading this document almost brings me to tears, just the power of the words that were written, and the men who did it.

the declaration of independence is so hard to study but you made much easier for me. thanks! p.s. hi!

As long as I can remember, there has never been anyone that I know of that is/was as passionate about the people and about writing as Thomas Jefferson. We need another leader like him in this generation, maybe one will rise to the occassion...

I like you things about history.
My daugther and I came across an article from my mother's personal items written in a Beckley, WV newspaper years ago by Shirley Donnelly about a relative of ours, Button Gwinnett, who signed the Declaration of Independence. My mother was a Gwinn and we have much history about her grandparents, Laban and Rosa Gwinn, who lived in the New River Gorge on a site named Roundbottom. Thank you for the information concerning Button Gwinnett. Is there a way to see his signature??

when was the declaration of independence signed?
I think that the declaration of independence is really neat that all 55 congressmen all signed one document that declares our independence also were learning this in school.
He "erected" multitudes of "new offices" and sent swarms to "eat out their substances?" Sounds dirty and unclean. Baby Jesus would never approve of this kind of blasphemy.

At times it seems too many of us forget the price it cost us to have the freedoms and the rights we hold so dear. The Declaration, as well as the Bill of Rights, should be displayed proudly in every American's home.
the declaration was as a matter of fact 1 of the most important things that was written on paper!
