Liberty and Justice for All

Well, hello there! 
I'm glad you could join me
for a look back at a bit of history. 
In case you don't know who I am,
allow me to introduce myself. 
My name is Thomas Jefferson
You probably know me best
as the author of the
Declaration of Independence.

It's likely that you know about the Declaration of Independence. 
Most people living in our country do. 
But, do you know the reasons
it was written and signed,
and why it led to the
American Revolution?

Ah yes!  I remember that time in history well.  I'd be pleased to share those events with you. 
Let's look at the reasons why Americans and those who led them
went to war with England to win their independence.
