The declaration of Independence was written between June 11 and June 28 1776 by Thomas Jefferson
The Declaration of Independence included statements of rights, charges against the king, and statements of Independence
Later on the Declaration Of Independence was celebrated by July 4
The sugar act of 1764: The colonist already had to pay coffee and molasses so they got mad having to pay everything that had sugar in it.
What was unfair is that not everyone paid for example the Navy didn't have to pay.
Many argued about the taxes but in the year 1765 they were angered even more.
The sons of liberty were a group of people that fought against the taxes.
