This book is a public collection of the three original documents in the founding of the United States of America and include, the Declaration of Independence, The Constitutions, and the Bill of Rights. Combined these documents are excellent primary historical sources for the American Revolution and the formation of the new republican state. The Constitution of the United States of America is the ultimate law of the country. The document embodies the doctrine of the separations of the executive powers of the federal government. The Declaration of Independence outlines the grievances of the Thirteen Colonies and explains why they are at war with the Kingdom of Great Britain. It was signed by representatives of all original Thirteen Colonies. The Bill of Rights records the first ten amendments or additions to the United States Constitution, written after the successful American Revolution, and the creation of the republican government. The Bill of Rights added specific guarantees of political rights and personal freedoms to the original Constitution.The newly founded American government borrowed heavily from English political traditions of public representation and individual liberty inherited from the Manga Carta and more recently inspired by English enlightenment philosophers like John Locke.
