Declaration of Independence – Historical Overview

I have two lessons on the Declaration of Independence. My other lesson provides a more in-depth text analysis created more for U.S. Government and Civics classes. This lesson is more aimed at U.S. History classes, however covers some of the same material. This lesson includes the events leading up the Declaration of Independence. The events that took place at the First & Second Continental Congresses – the naming of George Washington as Commander of the Continental Army, the Olive Branch Petition, the drafting committee, and the reasons for choosing Jefferson. This lesson also delves into the signing, the consequences of this document, and the ideals found in it. Watch the video linked below to see the content covered in this lesson below.
