Where is the Declaration of Independence located?

The Declaration of Independence is a separate document that announced to England that the colonies didn't want to be ruled by Parliament. It led to the Revolutionary War and when that was over, the Articles of the Confederacy and then the Constitution were written over the next several years. Both, in my opinion, are beautifully written and are very clear in their intent.

Which sentence describes a factor that motivated American colonists to declare their independence from the British?

Great Britain taxed the colonies but did not allow them to participate in politics.

Where are examples in the Declaration that point to a new perception of the relationship between colonists and Great Britain?

The Declaration of Independence states the American colonies are an independent country, and should be addressed as an independent country. This lets the king, Parliament, and British subjects know, they are no longer considering themselves as a part of Britain. Also, although it was pretty hypocritical for a country that allowed slavery, the document declares that 'all men are created equal.' This implies the colonies are no longer willing to allow themselves to be ruled over by a king and Parliament they already consider themselves to be equal to.

Did Britain agree to the Declaration of Independence?

Federalist such as: Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, John Jay were in favor of the Constitution. Anit-federalists such as: Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams wanted a Bill of Rights added on to the Constitution, so a compromise was made and the Bill of Rights was added.

What statement was not intended in the Declaration of Independence?

One of the complaints of the Declaration of Independence was the fact the Britain did not allow the colonies to establish a Judiciary Branch. Once independence was won, this branch was entered into the Constitution and would become the Supreme Court, which is one of the strongest parts of the governmental branches. The Framers never intended for the Judicial Branch to be the strongest, but rather the weakest.
