OK, I'm confused. The first draft is by Adams' hand, and the rough draft is by Jefferson's. Is Jefferson's the original? Also, I find it fascinating that both drafts firmly and unequivically condemn the act of slavery, yet the Congress chose to strike those comments before approval of a final draft. It took another 84 years to undo that nightmare.

The United States Declaration of Independence is a statement adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, announcing that the thirteen American colonies then at war with Great Britain were no longer a part of the British Empire. The birthday of the United States of America—Independence Day—is celebrated on July 4, the day the wording of the Declaration was approved by Congress.

BUSH IS THE RIGHT GUY TO CONTROL THE COUNTRY AND IF YOU THINK HE MADE THE COUNRTY GO DOWN THEY ARE WRONG CAUSE THIS WHOLE THING STARTED WHEN CLINTON GOT IN OFFICE.AND SORRY FOR THE SPELLING.

We can rise above doubt, have hope, and ourselves undertake great endeavors against impossible odds, and that we might achieve ultimate success and enlightenment of individuals may be achieved, thanks to these, Americans of principle and renown, to whom we owe the effort to oppose tyrany in all it's insidious forms and to uphold freedom as the quintessiential American quality. To these great Americans I dedicate my efforts and endevour wholeheartedly the great and worthy cause of resurection and redemption of American Hemp rights and the freedom of all Americans to enjoy the virtues and use of the Cannibis plant crops as they each might see fit. To these ends, and by honest and enlightened means may the truth set us free. Ricky John Grubb, public servant, Sunland Ca.

The Declaration of Independence is truly important to this nation's people and to our country's history.

Your information on John and Samuel Adams not being a part of the Sons of Liberty is incorrect. Please visit the website: http://www.masshist.org/cabinet/august2001/august2001.html This site has an original document titled: An Alphabetical List of the Sons of Liberty who din'd at Liberty Tree, Dorchester, 14 August 1769. "This list of the Sons of Liberty present at the festivities was compiled by William Palfrey, one of the participants. His grandson, John Palfrey, donated it to the Society in August 1869, on the 100th anniversary of the event. Because of the organization's secrecy, this list provides a rare glimpse into its membership." I'd also double check John Adam's diary as well. Thanks for all the other information you post, it is very helpful for those of us still unafraid to be American.

Thank you for your time and dedication to a cause, thanks to our current "education system" few Americans really understand, and even fewer care about. Contrary to popular perception, the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution is the document upon which our nation is founded. "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. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." In fifty-six words, Jefferson accented his proclaimation of freedom, by exalting the status of mankind--The Created Image, To the Level Intended by Our Creator. These fifty six words, a simple recognition of truth, sent shock waves throughout every kingdom, and created trepidation within every crowned head of Europe. By redefining its source, and recognizing the sovereign status of the individual, he dedicated any following government too the protection of that principle. The resulting, constitution, by hypocritically limiting the definition of "men" to the bibical gender interpretation: i.e " the man, and his wife were driven from the garden," rather than "mankind" the the broad species interpretation guaranteed the Civil War. Hyporcrisy bears a high price. Wendall Dennis Author of: "Damnocracy" Government From Hell"

I was driven by curiosity after having the pleasure of visiting your great nation ealier this year to read the declaration. Seldom can there have been such a poignant doccument it must be unique in seeking "happiness" for its peoples. USA I salute you thank you for making me so welcome I offer my prayers to your nation that solutions may be found for the current financial hard times we are all experiancing. Thank you for saving my birth nation ( England ) during two terrible wars and for standing against those who would seek to destroy peace and freedom for those nations that seek only to live in peace. I admire your patriotic peoples who stand by the flag long may you prosper.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your website as well as some of the comments by others like me who have felt like writing them. I came on this website after reading Martin Luther King's famous "I Have A Dream" speech (http://www.usconstitution.net/dream.html) and then wanting to more fully understand what "unalienable" means. I first came across another good website that explained it well (http://www.lexrex.com/enlightened/AmericanIdeal/yardstick/pr3.html) but decided to look further. I can get carried away when I go on-line to find information. Isn't it wonderful!

With the recent election of Barack Obama I'm currently researching the Civil Rights movements from about 1953 to the present. in 1962 I was 15 and sickened by the TV news of dogs and firehoses turned on toddlers and granny's. I ran away from home to march with Dr. King. I wound up sleeping in Andy Youmg's basement alomg with Bayard Rustin and mant others. From 1966 until the laws were changed, and the announcement and warning of civil penalties is in every newspaper published today. It is illegal to practise discrimination in housing.

A rare piece of American history is up for sale. And I think it should be owned by the U.S. government. It is the original 50 star flag. It is owned by Bob Heft, the flag's designer. About Bob: Robert G. (Bob) Heft (born in Saginaw, Michigan in 1942) is a designer of the 50 star flag, and one of the proposed designs for a 51 star flag for the United Sates of America. He spent his childhood in Lancaster, Ohio, where he created the flag as a school project. He designed the current U.S. flag in 1958 while living with his grandparents. He was 17 years old at the time and did the flag design as a class project. He unstitched the blue field from a family 48-star flag, sewed in a new field, and used iron-on white fabric to add 100 hand-cut stars, 50 on each side of the blue canton . This flag must be sold, because of Bob's failing health and family situations. As of yet, we've only had interests from overseas, and would like this to remain in the U.S.A. If you are not able to help us, could you direct us to people who might be able to. Please see his website at www.bobheft.net or www.bobheftusa.com My phone number is 989-327-0265 Thank You: Mario Garcia

I love my country and sadly I feel that the young people of our time are uneducated in our countries history, the foundation in which it was built and in the ideals and fundamentals in which our forfathers used to build that foundation. The democrats of been able to brain wash our young into believing their radical ideas and have turned many of our countries people away from what our country was built on.

if we hold the truthes to be self evident that all men are equal then why dont we treat men and woman equal. that goes for then and now isnt liberty the state of being form oppresive restrictions that impose on ones way of life behavior or political views isnt liberty free will and independence and isnt the pursuit of happiness being able to purse what makes us happy with no boundrys as long as it dosent harm others or encroach on their way of life and their views or belifes im not say thisas a young african american to other blacks i say it to whites asian americans nativve americans and to all americans.

Great information! However, on the bio's for different signers, it doesn't mention ANY of their Christian influence, which were fundamental in their revolutionary beliefs. Now, not all of them were Christians, I know that, but John Witherspoon? He was a pastor! It doesn't mention that!

I have the movie 1776 (a musical version of the creation of the Declaration) and after watching that then reading the different versions of the Declaration, I realize how difficult it must have been to create a document establishing a new country's independence while still maintaining some of the acceptable principles of England.
