    1776 · The Declaration to the King

    Age 9

    """At the end of the Second Continental Congress the 13 colonies came together to petition independence from King George III. With no opposing votes, the Declaration of Independence was drafted and ready for all delegates to sign on the Fourth of July 1776. While many think the Declaration was to tell the King that they were becoming independent, its true purpose was to be a formal explanation of why the Congress voted together to declare their independence from Britain. The Declaration also is home to one of the best-known sentences in the English language, stating, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."""""""

But with a limited central government, the Constitutional Convention came together to replace the Articles of Confederation with a more established Constitution and central government on where the states can be represented and voice their concerns and comments to build up the nation.

    Name Meaning

    English (Warwickshire and Northamptonshire): from the Middle English personal name Sabin (from Latin Sabinus; see 2 below) or its female equivalent Sabine (from Latin Sabina). In medieval England the feminine form was always more popular as a personal name.

    French: from the Old French personal name Sabin, from Latin Sabinus. The name was originally referred to the Sabines, an ancient Italic people of central Italy whose name is of uncertain origin. In the 8th century BC the Romans slaughtered the Sabine menfolk and carried off the women. More influential as far as name-giving is concerned was the existence of several early Christian saints named Sabinus.

    Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Sabháin ‘descendant of Sabhán’, a personal name based on sabh ‘cub’. As an Irish surname, this has mostly been absorbed into Savage .
