Summary

Summary

Though the Declaration of Independence made some bold statements about the equality of all people, clearly, its promises have not held true for many Americans. This anthology describes the culture and controversies that were brewing at the time the document was written. It also describes the sometime heated discussions the declaration brought up regarding the slavery issue and provides a look into how others have and continue to use it as a defense of their rights.
