From Muppet Wiki

The Declaration of Independence was an act adopted by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776. The document was largely written by Thomas Jefferson, as part of a committee headed by John Adams and also including Benjamin Franklin, Robert Livingstone, and Roger Sherman. The document declared that the colonies were "free and independent states" and served as a formal announcement and justification of the colonies' split from England. As such, it is often considered the founding document of the United States of America.

Contrary to its representation in popular culture and the famous painting by John Trumbull, the document was approved on July 4th but not signed on that day by anyone except John Hancock and secretary Charles Thomson; the original draft was sent to the printers, and most delegates signed on August 2.

The Muppets have frequently demonstrated their patriotism by re-enacting the signing of the Declaration.

  • The Muppet portion of the special I Love Liberty emphasized the heated congressional debates and stick fighting which historically composed much of the early discussion over independence, but Kermit notes that it all ended in the Declaration of Independence and the founding of a new nation.

Background

The Declaration of Independence is a statement adopted by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, announcing that the thirteen American colonies then at war with Great Britain were no longer a part of the British Empire. Written primarily by Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration is a formal explanation of why Congress had voted on July 2 to declare independence from Great Britain, more than a year after the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War. The birthday of the United States of America—Independence Day—is celebrated on July 4, the day the wording of the Declaration was approved by Congress.

Bugs

  • If you give Abraham Washington a copy of the declaration and take this item afterward, it will be stuck in your inventory, weighing you down.
  • it seems if you take the Bill of Rights and give it to Abraham before you give him the declaration it will break the quest dialogue and he will assume you already gave him the declaration and refuse to take it from your inventory. Sydney doesn't trust you enough to "wait here" when the document is in your inventory so basically your forced to either kill or disable her via the console to stop her from following you.
