The Signing of the Declaration of Independence
The signing of the Declaration of Independence enabled the American colonies to be free of British law. This document states that all men poses unalienable rights and introduced the idea of a social contract. The Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson, and signed by many men, including John Adams and Ben Franklin.
British officers move forward to Concord after the battle at Lexington. The initial plan had been to raid the colonists of all their weapons. However, when the British officers arrived, the weapons were no longer there. Colonists had hid them, thinking one step ahead.
Though it was initially supposed to, the events at Valley Forge never included a battle. More than 1/5 of the men had died of disease and malnutrition. Due to the harsh temperatures and little supplies, neither the colonists, nor the British, had any drive to fight.
