Essentially it states the Enlightenment ideas that men were created equal and had rights. The second part tells what problems were in the colonies and that the king did nothing to correct them. Finally, it declares the colonies independent from the king.

Is Declaration of Independence a noun?

Yes, the words declaration of independence alone are a noun, I believe. However, if one were to say "The United States Declaration of Independence," it would become a proper noun and therefore capitalized. I realize that to America, our Declaration of Independence is the only document of its kind and therefore is considered only a proper noun, but to other countries, it is not the same. It is a regular noun. When speaking of our document, they refer to it as the American Declaration of Independence.
