Action of Second Continental Congress, July 4, 1776.  The Unanimous
Declaration of the thirteen United States of America.  (Sample)

 

« When in the Course of human Events,
it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve
the Political Bands which have connected them with another,
and to assume among the Powers of the Earth,
the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of
Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent
Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should
declare the causes which impel them to the Separation. »
