United States of America Historical Resources II

United States of America Historical Resources
A declaration of independence is an assertion of the independence of an aspiring state or states. Such places are usually declared from part or all of the territory of another nation or gained nation, or are runaway territories from within the smaller state. Not all declarations of independence were successful and resulted in independence for these regions.
Declarations of independence are typically made without the consent of the parent state, and hence are sometimes called unilateral declarations of independence (UDI), particularly by those who question the declarations' validity.

This select number of documents are listed below. Images of some of these documents are also available.
