The United States Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Second Continental Congress at the Pennsylvania State House in Philadelphia, on July 4, 1776. Enacted during the American Revolution, the Declaration explains why the thirteen colonies at war with the Kingdom of Great Britain regarded themselves as thirteen independent sovereign states, no longer subject to British colonial rule. The Declaration of Independence was signed by 56 of America's Founding Fathers, congressional representatives from New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. With the Declaration, these new states took a collective first step in forming the United States of America and, as a result, formalized the American Revolutionary War.
