Declaration of Independence
Does the Declaration of Independence Still Mean Something in 2014?
A remarkable document in human history, without precedent or rival, the Declaration outlines not what the United States should be, but what it should not be, defining America in opposition to Britain.
America Declared Independence on July 2, Not July 4
Congress declared independence for the 13 colonies on July 2, 1776, and they didn't sign the Declaration of Independence until a month later.
