Summary:
"...We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness..."

These words grace The Declaration of Independence, written in 1776, which remain as true today as when it was conceived. It is critical for American citizens to understand their importance in defining our freedoms and the foundation of democracy. This captivating program explores the political forces that existed before 1776 and the socioeconomic realities that made it necessary to declare to the world our independence from Great Britain. Examine the body of knowledge that contributed to The Declaration of Independence, such as the Magna Carta of 1215.

Fresh meaning to this extraordinary document is presented and these questions are answered: Why is John Hancock's signature so prominent? Considering it was adopted on July 2nd, 1776, why do we celebrate our independence on the 4th of July? Who is generally credited as the principal author of The Declaration of Independence? Great American thinkers, political leaders and presidents have reflected on this document long after it was written. Noted educators and elected officials share their thoughts and insights on one of America's most important manuscripts.
