Transcript of Declaration of Independence Prezi

Who is the governed??? Declaration of Independence Doug Garren-GLE 1b 5th Grade Declaration of Independence We hold these truths to be self evident,
that all men are created equal, that they
are endowed by their Creator with certain
Unalienable Rights, that among these
are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Thomas Jefferson, The Declaration of Independence 1776 Unalienable Rights What do you
think they are? "Government by the consent
of the governed" References http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=too+late+to+apologize+a+declaration+&oq=to+late+to+&gs_l=youtube.1.1.0i10l10.1017.2863.0.6186. To late to apologize: Declaration U. S. Declaration of Independence, paragraph 1 (1776) The Document that made the United States Governments are instituted among Men,
deriving their just powers from the consent
of the governed.

The King of Great Britian was forcing the
colonist to pay taxes and adhere to laws
that they were not a part of making or
enforcing. The colonists wanted to govern themselves
but "why"?

The Declarataion of Independence is basically a letter that defines all the complaints
the colonists had with the king of Great Britian.

Now if your freedoms were taken away
how would you go about changing your situation? Reference Reference U. S. Declaration of Independence, paragraph 1 (1776) Because of oppression and high taxation american colonists rebelled against Great
Britain and became citizens of the first thirteen
states. The colonists felt they could govern
themselves, and were tired of the difficulty of individual survival under the rule of an absolute
monarch. To Late to Apologize http://www.youtube.com/user/soomopublishing
