The Virginia Declaration of Rights was created in May 1776 and ratified on June 12, 1776. It is important because of the ideas it set forth such as all men being free, all men being entitled to free exercise of religion and all men being allowed to enjoy the pursuit of happiness and liberty to name a few.
