You're probably wondering when and where we declared our independence?
Throughout the 13 colonies there were 56 delegates, and 2 from each state were sent to the Second Continental Congress. Where John Hancock was voted president.
The talk about independence was growing rapidly. A committee which consisted of John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Robert Livingston, and Roger Sherman to prepare a declaration of independence.
The committee appointed Thomas Jefferson to right a draft, and submitted it June 28. On July 4 1776 Congress approved the final draft of the Declaration of Independence.
When Richard Henry Lee proposed his resolution for independence, he also proposed a plan call the Articles of Confederation. It was presented in 1777, and ratified by all 13 states March 1781.
The Articles of Confederations was not working out, so at the Constitutional Convention everyone agreed to abandon this form of government. They pursued a limited and representative government.
