1776

Thomas Jefferson's American Declaration of Independence endorsed by Congress. Colonies declare independence.

1776 · The Declaration to the King

"""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."""""""

1781 · The First Constitution

Serving the newly created United States of America as the first constitution, the Articles of Confederation were an agreement among the 13 original states preserving the independence and sovereignty of the states. 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: occupational name from Middle English day(e), dey(e) ‘dairyman or dairymaid’. Originally used only of women, it was later used of men with the sense ‘man in charge of the dairy cattle’. This is probably the most common source of the surname.

English: from the Middle English personal name Day(e) or Dey. In western England this is probably a pet form of David , but in northern England and perhaps elsewhere also it is a late Middle English variant of Daw, a pet form of Ralph (see Daw , Dakin ).

Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Deaghaidh (see O'Dea ).
