It’s America’s Birthday!

On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress.   It stated that the thirteen colonies no longer wanted to be ruled by the king of England.  They wanted to make their own laws and rules.  At the time, the colonies were fighting the Revolutionary War to protest British rule and excessive taxes.  After they won the war, the representatives of the thirteen colonies got together to write the Constitution.  The Constitution is the document that explains how the U.S. government will function.  The Bill of Rights was added to describe the freedoms and protections of U.S. citizens.
