The Declaration of Independence is a document signed by members of the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, addressed to King George III and declaring the American colonies' independence from Great Britain. Rooted in the political philosophy of the Enlightenment, the document declares that "all men are created equal," that they have "unalienable rights," such as "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." The document lists numerous grievances against the Crown, arguing that the King has violated the social contract, thereby morally permitting the colonies to rebel.
