The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America

Read it here.

Pay special attention to the list of the King’s many tyrannies. Anything sound familiar?

Also, for your Independence Day reading pleasure: Bill Fowler’s Boston Globe column “Lives Lost for Freedom.” It contains a description of the suffering of Revolutionary War soldiers, and a lovely quote from Washington’s Newburgh Address (which prevented the onset of a military coup against Congress in 1783).
