Why Is The Declaration A Tyrant Or Traitor?

Satisfactory Essays
When reading the Declaration, it is worth keeping in mind two very important facts. The Declaration constituted high treason against the king and every person who signed it would be executed as traitors if they were caught by the British. Also, the Declaration was considered to be a legal document by which the revolutionaries justified their actions, and explained why they were not truly traitors. It represented, as it were, a literal indictment of the Crown and Parliament, in the very same way that criminals are now publicly indicted for their alleged crimes by grand juries representing “the People.”
