Although Thomas Jefferson is often credited as the sole writer of the document, the Declaration (1776) was a collaborative effort.

Jefferson was the one responsible for writing both the first and final draft. However, he was actually part of a committee appointed by the Second Continental Congress to write it. The other four members were Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Robert R. Livingston and Roger Sherman, all of whom provided recommendations on the language of the document.

The US Constitution had a much wider authorship, with various sections provided by many of the Founding Fathers. The various suggestions and clauses were merged into a first draft by a "Committee of Detail" consisting of:

John Rutledge (SC)

Edmund Randolph (VA)

Nathaniel Gorham (MA)

Oliver Ellsworth (CT)

James Wilson (PA)

The purpose of the Declaration of Independence was to declare that the American colonies were free from British rule and that they were their own country. The main writer of the Declaration of Independence was Thomas Jefferson, but there were many others who helped write it.
