The Declaration of Independence is regarded as Americas most important document, setting down the reasons for the colonies to break away from British rule. The Declaration was written during a period of great turmoil as those favoring independence struggled to convince loyalists of the importance of going to war against Great Britain and establishing a new nation. In adopting the Declaration of Independence, the Continental Congress established a framework for equality, human rights and democratic government.
