United States Declaration of Independence
Independence Day And How it began
English settlers landed at Jamestown, Virginia in the year 1607. In the years that followed, people from many different countries came to America. They came to America , for different reasons, some came for a better life and some came because they wanted to worship God in the way that they desired and they all wanted land as well.
After a little more than a hundred years there were thirteen English colonies in America, they were all ruled by the King of England. Over time Americans wanted to make their own laws. They did not want a King ruling over them and telling them how they should live.
April 19th, 1775, the beginning of the Revolutionary War, there was a battle between the American patriots and the British soldiers. It began with the Americans fighting to defend their rights, but soon they wanted full independence.
It was on July 4, 1776, that the American leaders approved the Declaration of Independence.
This was a very important paper, stating that the people had the right to be free. The thirteen colonies came together to fight for that freedom.
The war went on for eight years. And finally peace in 1783. The people had fought and won their freedom. And so it is to this very day that on July 4th, freedom is remembered and celebrated all over America.
