John Adams' Journey to Independence
Will you write the Declaration of Independence?
It was July 03, 1776 and John Adams was writing a letter to his wife, Abigail, about how the Continental Congress was working to help the colonies get their independence from Great Britain.
He had asked Thomas Jefferson to write the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson explains the reasons that the colonies wanted their independence. He came up with the 27 complaints about the King.
In the letter to Abigail, John had explained how hard it was to get all the colonies to have a unanimous vote for independence.
He reviewed the 27 complaints that Jefferson had wrote. After that he began to tell the congress about the many great advantages the Declaration of Independence had.
Abigail is always happy when she gets a letter from John. She loves reading about what he has been doing while he is away.
He predicted that the second day of July would be the most memorable day in the history of America. Their Independence would be celebrated with a parade, games, and parties. His prediction was all right but, this day would be July 4th not July 2nd.
