Approved and Paid for by the Candidate al, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. He has dissolved Represen- tative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative pow- ers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. He has endeavoured to pre- vent the population of these States; for that purpose ob- structing the Laws for Natu- ralization of Foreigners; refus- ing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. He has obstructed the Ad- ministration of Justice, by re- fusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers. He has made Judges depen- de on his Will alone, for the temme of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance. He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power. He has combined with oth- ers to subject us to a jurisdic- tion foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: For protecting them, by a Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabit- ants of these States: For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury: For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, estab- lishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies: For taldng away our Char- ters, abolishing our most valu- able Laws, and altering fun- damentally the Forms of our Governments: For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. He has abdicated Govern- ment here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. He is at this time transport- ing large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circtmlstances of Cruelty & ave a 24 Hour Services For Your Convenience ATM's Express Phone Banking Online Banking Mobile Banking Member FDIC Since 1903 Monterey Ferriday Vidalia Natchez Woodville 2 I perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a ci "xalized nation. He has constrained our fel- low Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to be- come the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. He has excited domestic in- s ons amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our fron- tiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an un "d tinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. In every stage of these Op- pressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most hum- ble terms: repea /Pe- titions have been ered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a people. Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of at- tempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circum- stances of our emigration and settlement here. We have ap- pealed to their native jnstioe and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably inter- rupt our connections and cor- respondence. They too have been deaf to the voice ofjustioe and ofconsanguini We must, therefore, acquiesce in the ne- cessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of man- kind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends. We, therefore, the Repre- sentatives of the united States of America, in General Con- gress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, sol- emnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all peliti- cal connection between them and the State of Great Brit- ain, is and ought to be totally Thimbles l Threads dissolved; and that as and Independent Statas, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Al- liances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Decla- ration, with a firm relianoe on the protection of divine Provi- dence, we mutually pledge to: each other our Lives, our For- tunes and our sacred Honor.
