We encourage viewers and those interested in American history to read Georgetown Law Professor and constitutional scholar, Randy Barnett’s excellent, easy-to-read short article explaining the Declaration here in conjunction with reading the Declaration below. [Note: Some paragraph breaks added to facilitate reading on mobile devices.]
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
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.
