History Study: The Body of the Declaration

It was the main body of the Declaration which captured the attention of the nation when it was published in January, 1777. This section sought to prove that King George had indeed broken his covenant with the colonies and become a tyrant. The "Facts" which were submitted to the world included the following:

1. He had disrupted the legislative process in the colonies.

2. He had disrupted the administration of justice.

3. He had disregarded the individual constitutions of each of the colonies.
