The end of the document discloses "these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown." The outcome to the Declaration also includes the support they have for this document, that they vow to protect it and pledge their lives and honor.The Declaration of Independence is one of the most significant documents in the history of the United States. It has completely and forever changed the structure and foundation of our country.The Declaration gave purpose to the Revolutionary war. It was a justified reason to revolt againsta government that no longer assured us our rights. It shows that they didn't go to war without apprehension. The war had been going on for over a year before the document was even adopted and it gave the Americans confirmed reasons why they should fight, and to remind them what they are fighting for. The Declaration teaches why the founding fathers thought it was important to claim independence from Great Britain. This document shows us the 27 grievances that led up to the cause of writing the Declaration. It gave a renewed ground for United States soldiers which led them to triumph.

Without our forefathers making these early decisions and taking action to ensure our nations future, who knows where this great country would be today.The Declaration of Independence is such an important document because it plays such a strong role in our world today. Without the declaration there would not be a Bill of Rights or a Constitution created. If it were not for this document women would have no rights along with other races. A man would have no stake in who leads his country, or any stake for that matter in any major national change, but because of the words in this document there are now equal rights for everyone and it is ensured that every person will be heard.
