War and American Society Written Assignment 1 (Part 2) Tawanda McCrae February 10, 2018 The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America ratified in Congress on July 4, 1776; was a document created to set forth the collective ideas, political objectives and moral beliefs of the British born colonists who had defeated the Crown to gain their independence. The purpose of the document was to “declare” the colonist’s vision of freedom; it served as an outline for the development of States rights, and democracy. It most expressly rejected all former systems of British rule and absolute tyranny over the governed. The Declaration of Independence lays out each atrocity the King had forced upon his colonial subjects, for the sole purpose of reminding the people of what behaviors and methods need not be repeated in order to maintain a democracy. The colonists paint a detailed picture of all attempts of negotiation with the Crown as well as all the attempts the Crown made to destroy the colonists. Allegiance was sworn to the United States and publically absolved the colonists of any obligations to the British crown.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
