The Declaration of Independence, Part II
of Independence has five parts. They are the Preamble, the Statement
of Human Rights, Charges Against Human Rights, Charges Against the
King and Parliament, and the Statement of Separation and Signatures.

of the Declaration of Independence was to announce the colonies
separation from England. It also stated the principles that were
the foundation for seeking independence.
of Independence states that all men are created equal and are entitled
to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." These
ideas would be expressed again in the new republic's Constitution.
These ideas form the basis of our beliefs about the role of our
government in our lives today.
