The Declaration of Independence - the Founding Fathers (Thomas Jefferson/John Adams) - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of The Declaration of Independence:

Bye! George!

My favorite quote from the document:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal..."

Questions I pondered after reading The Declaration of Independence:

Do we have similar grievances today?

How well is our current government holding up to this list?

My thoughts on The Declaration of Independence:

Independence Day!  The fireworks have begun!

The beginning of the US!

Be bold like Hancock!
