Storyboard Text

  • Violence with Britain is unavoidable!
  • Wrong sir!  Peace with Britain should be kept at all costs.
  • We are entitled to the same rights as the British, this abuse is ridiculous.
  • It would be my humble honor to accept this position.
  • King George III won't give us our rights, we must take them by force!
  • If we do fight back, I believe no one is more fit to lead our rebellion than George Washington.
  • That's a death wish, peace with our creators must be kept!
  • We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
