page 164 describe the attempts of the colonies to address those grievances.

What is the reason for the drafting of the Declaration as stated in its opening paragraph?

The purpose of the Declaration is to dissolve the bonds of one people with another.

page 165

What had the king asked the people to relinquish? What did this right mean to them? Why is such a right formidable to tyrants?

The king had asked the people of the colonies to relinquish their right to representation in the government.

The value of this right was immeasurable to the people. Such a

right is formidable to tyrants because people ruled by

representatives will oppose a tyrant’s wishes.


page 166 describe the attempts of the colonies to address those grievances.

3. What has the king dissolved? What effect has this had on the people? 

The king has dissolved representative houses in the colonies. The

Declaration claims that when a leader dissolves a representative

body, then the legislative powers that were invested in that body

return to the people themselves. The effect of the king’s action is that the people are exposed to internal and external turmoil.

4. What has the king declared? What destructive things has he done?

The king has declared the colonies outside his protection. He has waged war against them, plundered their seas, ravaged their coasts, burned their towns, and destroyed lives.


page 167 describe the attempts of the colonies to address those grievances.

5. What powers do the united colonies have?

The united colonies have full power to make war, to make peace, to form alliances, to conduct trade, and to do anything else that

independent countries do.
