Storyboard Text

  • 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.
