The Declaration of Independence was written by a committee of five people: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Robert R. Livingston, although Thomas Jefferson did most of the writing. It was adopted by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776. Just a few days later, on July 8, 1776, the Liberty Bell was rung when the Declaration was read to the public for the first time.
The Declaration of Independence begins by telling the world that there were reasons for the colonies declaring their independence and that this document would explain the reasons.
It goes on to explain what the framers of the Declaration believed were basic rights that people should have. The Declaration then tells what the colonies felt the King of Britain did that made him more like a tyrant than a fair and just ruler.
The document finally explains that an effort has been made to settle the problems peacefully, but these efforts have been ignored and the only course left to the colonies is to declare independence.
