v IN CONGRESS JULY 4, 1776.
" Tho unanimous declaration of the
thirteen United States of Amerlcu.
When In the course of human events,
It becomes necessary for one people
to' dissolve the political bands which
navo connected them with another,
and to assume among the powers of
the earth, the separate and equal Bta
tlon to which the Laws of Nature and
of Nature's God entitles them, a de
cent respect to the opinions of man
kind requires thnt they should de
clare the causes which Impel them to
tho separation. I
We hold these truths to bo self
evident, that nil men aro created
equal, that they are endowed by their
Creator with certain unalienable
Rights, thnt among thoio aro Life, i
Liberty, and tho pursuit of Happi
ness. That to secure thcuo rights.
Governments aro instituted among
Men, deriving their just powers from
tho consent of the governed, that
whenever any rorm of Government
becomes destructive ot theso ends, It
Is the night of tho 1'coplo to niter or
to abolish It, and to Institute new
Government, laying Its foundation on
such principles and organizing Its
powers In such form, as to them
shall seem most likely to effect their
Safety and Happiness. Prudence, In-
deed, will dlctnto that Governments most barbarous ages, and totally un
long established should not be' worthy the Head of a civilized un
changed for light and transient caus-1 tlon, ,
cs: and accordingly nil experience Ho has constrained our fellow-Clt-
hath shewn that mankind aro moro
disposed to suffer, while evils are
sufferable, than to right Hipnirchci
by abolishing the forms to which r
thoy are accustomed. Hut when a
long train of ubuses nnd usurpations, j
pursuing invariabl) the same Object
evinces a design to luce them un
der absolute Despotism, It Is their
right, It Is their duty, to throw oft
Rliph flnvnrnni.nf nml In nmplilA ..
Quards for their future security. Such '
lias been tho patient sufferanco of in every stage of theso Oppressions,
these Colonies; and such Is now tho Wo havo Petitioned for Itcdrcs3 in
necessity which constrains them to tho most humblo terms: Our Hcpeat
alter their former Svstcms ot Govern- cd Petitions havo been answered only
incnt. The history of tho present j by repeated Injury. A Prince, whoso
King of Great llrltaln Is a history of! character is thus marked by every
repeated Injuries nnd usurpations, nil
having In direct object tho establish
ment ot an absoluto Tyranny over
these States. To Drove, this, let

the most wholcsomo and necessary
for the public good. ,
he has forblddon his Governors to

ing Importance, unless suspended In

be obtained; and when so suspended,
-ho has utterly neglected to attend to
He has refused to pass other Laws
for the accommodation ot largo dis
tricts of people, unless those people
would relinquish the right of Repre
sentation In tho Legislature, a right
Inestimable, to them nnd formldablo
to tyrants only.

bodies nt places unusual, uncomfort
able, and distant from tho depository

purpose of fatiguing them Into com
pliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative
Houses repeatedly, for opposing with
manly firmness his Invasions on tho
rights of the people
He has refused for a long time, af
ter such dissolutions, to cause, others
to be elected; whereby the Legisla
tive powers, Incapable of Annihila
tion, havo returned to tho 1'coplo at
largo for their exercise; tho Stato
remaining In tho meantime, exposed
to all the dangers ot Invasion from
without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavored to prevent tho
population ot these States; for Unit
purpose obstructing tho Laws for
Naturalization ot Foreigners; refus-
tjDB to pass others to encourage their
migrations hither, nnd raising tho
conditions ot now Appropriations of
, , Lands.
He has obstructed tho Admlnlstra-
t tlon ot Justice, by refusing his Assent
to Laws for establishing Judlclnry
He has made Judges dependent on
his Will alone, for the tcnuro of their
offlces, and tho amount and payment
ot their salaries.
He hns erected a multltudo of Now
Offlces, and sent hither swarms of
Officers to harass our people, and cat
out their substance
. ire has kept among us, In times ot
peace, Standing Armies without tho
Consent of our legislature.
He has affected to render tho Mili
tary Independent ot and superior to
the Civil power.
''He hns combined with othors to
Bubjoct us to a Jurisdiction foreign to
our Constitution, nnd unacknowledg
ed by our laws; giving his Assent to
their Acts ot pretended Legislation:

lloundarlc bo as to render it nt once
an example and fit Instrument for In

to theso Colonics:
1'or taking away our Charters,
abolishing our most valuable Laws,
and altering fundamentally tho
fcVrms of our (!ocrnnionts;
Tor suspending our own Legtsla

In all cases whatsoever.
Ho has abdicated Government here
by declaring us out of his Protection
nnd waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravag
ed our Coasts, burnt our towns, and
destroyed the lives of our people.
He Is nt this time transporting
l.uge Armies ot foreign Mercenaries
to complete the works ot death, des
olation and tvranuy, already begun
with circumstances of Cruelty nnd
perfidy scarcely paralleled in tho
Izcns taken captive, on tho high Seas
to bear Arms ngalnst their Countr),

friends and Urcthrcn, or to fall them

He has excited domestic insurrec

to bring on tho inhabitants of our
frontiers, the merciless Indian S.iv
nges, whoso known rulo ot wnrfaro Is
an undistinguished destruction of all
ages, bexes and conditions,
act which may define a Tyrant, is
unfit to bo tho ruler ot a frco people.
Nor havo Wo been wanting In at
tentions to our Ilrltlsh brethren. Wo
have warned them from time to timo
ot attempts by tholr legislature to ex
tend an unwarrantable juilsdlctlon
over us. Wo havo reminded them of
tho circumstances of our emigration
and settlement here. Wo havo ap
pealed to their nativo Justice and
magnanimity, and wo havo conjured
them by tho ties of our common kin
dred to disavow theso usurpations,
which would Inevitably Interrupt our
connections nnd correspondence.
They too havo been dent to tho voice
of Justice nnd of consanguinity. Wo
must, therefore, acquiesce in tho ne
