As we celebrate our nation's 245th birthday...here is an introduction to the declaration of independence.
Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776, the Declaration of Independence is at once the United State's most cherished symbol of liberty and Jefferson's most enduring monument.
Here, in exalted and unforgettable phrases, Jefferson expressed the convictions in the minds and hearts of the American people. The political philosophy of the Declaration was not new; its ideals of individual liberty had already been expressed by John Locke and the Continental philosophers. What Jefferson did was to summarize this philosophy in "self-evident truths". Read a transcription of the complete text of the Declaration at: (get URL).
