when a small number of Americans decided to liberate and independence from the grip of Great Britain and were considered radicals
and in the middle of 1776 the number of those calling for independence increased.

and the publication of the article by Thomas Paine entitled Common Sense led to an escalation of revolutionary sentiments.
During the Continental Congress meeting on June 7, which was held in the Pennsylvania State Council in Philadelphia
which later became Independence Hall, Richard Henry Lee presented a proposal calling for the independence of colonial territories
which led to intense debate and the postponement of the vote decision
then resulted in an official statement explaining the justifications.
On July 2, Congress voted affirmatively on Richard’s decision, and two days later the Continental Congress formally declared independence.
