COT:
On this day, August 10, 1776, news reached King George in London that the Americans had drafted the Declaration of Independence.

Until the Declaration of Independence formally transformed the 13 British colonies into states, both Americans and the British saw the conflict centered in Massachusetts as a local uprising within the British empire.

When Parliament continued to oppose any reform and remained unwilling to negotiate with the American rebels and instead hired Hessians, German mercenaries, to help the British army crush the rebellion, the Continental Congress began to pass measures abolishing British authority in the colonies.

In January 1776, Thomas Paine published Common Sense, that convincingly argued for American independence from the British monarchy. It sold more than 500,000 copies in just a few months. By the spring of 1776, support for independence had swept through the colonies, the Continental Congress called for states to form their own governments and a five-man committee led by Thomas Jefferson was assigned to draft a document declaring independence from the British king.

Notice how the founding date of the United States was not set to coincide with the British surrender at Yorktown in 1781. It was the declaration that started the nation, not winning a war. It was the ultimate “we are a new nation, because we fucking said so!”
