How does Lucas say the singer of the Declaration of Independence created the sense that war was inevitable?
Probably two reasons are more important than others. First, the issue of slavery was very divisive between the north and south even before the Declaration of Independence was …issued. Second, the new country became divided philosphocally about the powers between the federal and state governments. This led to sectional interests between the north and south and slavery was only one difference. Southern states believed states had rights to overrule federal laws. Southern states refused to sign the Declaration of Independence unless the mention of abolishing slavery was removed. The issue arose again in the Constitutioanl Convention. The north wanted it abolished but the south did not. A compromise was reached as stated in Article 1, Section 9, Clause 1. Essentially, it put the issue of abolition off till 1808, so it was destined to arise again. After that year northern states put pressure on southern ones to abolish slavery but the southern states refused and resented other states interfering in their business. This clash of principles got more and more intense until the southern states had enough and declared their own independence from the United States government.
Yes and no. To declare Independence unlawfully is to declare rebellion, which is an act of war under British law. But, as a result of the Declaration of independence, a war en…ded.
The were chosen by being delegates in the thriteen colonies. i think they were chosen delegates also.
no you dum peole are wrong............. do not trust this web page they just let you add on to the site.:(
the 1st person to sign the declaration was mr john Hancock.who was born 12 January 1737 in braintree he graduated at Harvard collage. Elected to the Boston Assembly, 1766; D…elegate to, and President of, the Provincial Congress of Massachusetts, circa 1773; Elected to Continental Congress, 1774; Elected President of the Continental Congress, 1775; Member of Massachusetts state Constitutional Convention, elected Governor of Massachusetts, thr The signature of John Hancock on the Declaration of Independence is the most flamboyant and easily recognizable of all. It is perhaps no surprise that the story of his part in the revolution is equally engaging. Few figures were more well known or more popular than John Hancock. He played an instrumental role, sometimes by accident, and other times by design, in coaxing the American Revolution into being. Born in Braintree, Massachusetts in 1737, he was orphaned as a child, and adopted by a wealthy merchant uncle who was childless. Hancock attended Harvard College for a business education and graduated at the age of 17. He apprenticed to his uncle as a clerk and proved so honest and capable that, in 1760, he was sent on a business mission to England. There he witnessed the coronation of George III and engaged some of the leading businessmen of London. In 1763, his uncle died and John Hancock inherited what was said to be the greatest body of wealth in New England. This placed him in a society of men who consisted mainly of loyalists, suspected by the working population because of their great affluence and social power. Hancock, however, soon became very involved in revolutionary politics and his sentiments were, early on and clearly, for independence from Great Britain. He was in company with the Adamses and other prominent leaders in the republican movement in New England. He was elected to the Boston Assembly in 1766, and was a member of the Stamp Act Congress. In 1768 his sloop Liberty was impounded by customs officials at Boston Harbor, on a charge of running contraband goods. A large group of private citizens stormed the customs post, burned the government boat, and beat the officers, causing them to seek refuge on a ship off shore. Soon afterward, Hancock abetted the Boston Tea Party. The following year he delivered a public address to a large crowd in Boston, commemorating the Boston Massacre. In 1774, he was elected to the Provincial Congress of Massachusetts and simultaneously to the Continental Congress. When Peyton Randolph resigned in 1776, Hancock assumed the position of President. He retired in 1777 due to problems with gout, but continued public service in his native state by participating in the formation of its constitution. He was then elected to the Governorship of the state where he served for five years, declined reelection, and was again elected in 1787. He served in that office until his death in 1793. The dignity and character of John Hancock, celebrated by friend and enemy alike, did not suffer for his love of public attention. He was a populist in every sense, who held great confidence in the ability of the common man. He also displayed a pronounced contempt for unreasoned authority. A decree had been delivered from England in early 1776 offering a large reward for the capture of several leading figures. Hancock was one of them. The story, entirely unfounded, is that on signing the Declaration, Hancock commented, "The British ministry can read that name without spectacles; let them double their reward." An alternate story, also unfounded has him saying, "There, I guess King George will be able to read that!" He was the first to sign and he did so in an entirely blankspace 1793.
Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, George Washington, John Adams, James Madison
The first signer of the Declaration of Independence was John Hancock. There were 56 signers in all. Edward Rutledge was the youngest and Benjamin Franklin was the oldest. …John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, both future presidents, were signers, as well.
By they signs something and Thomas wrote a pamphlet
yes, it says it in the first sentence in the second paragraph.
Because it is a great concept
the common sense lead to the declaration of independence because thomas paine wrote the common sense and it was based on how americas need to take a stand because they need to… have their own rights and they wasn't be treated right and bascailly just wanted the people to have common sense.
I'm going to assume that you meant "Who were two signers of the Declaration of Independence?" and answer that, rather than your actual wording, which seems to be asking about …a duet about financial liberation from one's parents/guardians. John Hancock, quite famously, signed his name very large. Thomas Jefferson, who actually wrote the Declaration, also signed it.
That it was perfectly written. - APEX
