    1776 · The Declaration to the King

    Age 7

    """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 Rebellion served as a guardrail when helping reform the United States Constitution.

    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Spanish Jose, Carlos, Juan, Manuel, Luis, Mario, Miguel, Jorge, Ricardo, Julio, Pedro, Ramon.

    Spanish: from hidalgo ‘nobleman’, a shortening of the phrase hijo de algo ‘son of something’. The expression hijo de (from Latin filius ‘son’ + de ‘of’) is used to indicate the abundant possession of a quality, probably influenced by similar Arabic phrases with ibn; algo (from Latin aliquid ‘something’) is used in an elliptical manner to refer to riches or importance. As in the case of other surnames denoting high rank, the name does not normally refer to the nobleman himself, but is usually an occupational name for his servant or a nickname for someone who gave himself airs and graces.

    Hispanic (Mexico): probably also a habitational name from Hidalgo, the name of a state in Mexico.
