Telling his story to the world, born a slave but now a free man. He fought for African Americans not are viewed as “property” or “slaves” but as equal to whites and must receive fair treatment.
The Declaration of Independence is one of the most remarkable documents of the United States of America. The elaborate document contains almost fourteen-hundred words including a basic structure divided into two parts and within the two divided parts contains four main ideas within seven components. The declaration is not just any standard written document; it is a work of art painted by colonists who are driven by rage because of King George III of Great Britain injustices’ toward the colonies. This exemplifies that colonists took control and took part in creating the Declaration of Independence by voicing their opinions, hoping to acquire the freedom they deserve, “through time, to come together in one place, in one time, and in one

The American Declaration of Independence tells the People that everyone is created equally, yet simply looking at a history book disproves that statement. American history in itself is redundant when an individual looks at the meaning of “freedom.” From allowing African-Americans to vote all the way to finally allowing women to, the United States of America has a thing or two to learn about equality. However, this is not simply just an American concept. In the Victorian era, there was a famous poet by the name of Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

As a homeschooled boy from New York, he fought the asthma condition he was born with, fought for political positions in his state, fought in the Spanish-American war, fought for presidency, and all the while was fighting for America. No matter what opposition he faced, he never stopped fighting, and I think that is the truest form of determination. Had he not kept that determined attitude, he would not have been a colonel, governor, or a good President. If politicians today held the same zealous love for America’s wellbeing, we might be living in a much greater
“And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ’We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’ I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.”
Since the beginning of our country, the United States of America has always recognized the equality of man, and as stated in the Declaration of Independence,
