I will compare each document and see how they are important. Each of these documents played a very important role in founding this nation. Declaration of IndependenceThe Declaration of Independence was the first of these documents to be written. Thomas Jefferson drafted it in June of 1776 and was later adopted by Congress on the 4th of July in 1776.The purpose of the Declaration of Independence was to break ties with British rule and become an independent nation. The original thirteen colonies discussed the issues they had with the Kingof England and Thomas Jefferson believed that since King George III had no interest in their rights that he should not be allowed to reign over the citizens of the United States. It was a list ofgrievances against the King of England.
