    Age 71
    Thomas Jefferson's American Declaration of Independence endorsed by Congress. Colonies declare independence.
    1776 · The Declaration to the King
    Age 71
    """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."""""""

The First capital was temporary in New York City but by the second term of George Washington the Capital moved to Philadelphia for the following 10 years. Ultimately during the Presidency of John Adams, the Capital found a permanent home in the District of Columbia.

    Name Meaning

    English: variant of Hill with genitival -s if a relationship name, attested in Matilda Hilles, 1327 (Somerset), where the genitival form may signify widowhood; or with plural -s if habitational, attested in Johanne de Hyles, 1379 (Bickerstaffe, Lancashire), and Ricardo del Hyles, 1379 (Great Eccleston, Lancashire); or, with post-medieval excrescent -s, probably the most common form.
