The Declaration of Independence
By early 1776, the number of colonists who favored independence had grown. Patriot Thomas Paine had written a booklet, called Common Sense, that had influenced them. In it, Paine argued persuasively for independence. He used simple words that everyone could understand.
In June, the Congress decided it needed to write a document that told why the colonies had the right to be free from British rule. It chose five delegates to do this, including young Thomas Jefferson. At a portable desk, Jefferson wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence.
