The Declaration of Independence is so important because if it is not made, there is no America now. Actually signing the Declaration of Independence was a dangerous action becuase if the British won the war, who signed the Decalartion of Independence will be caught as traitors and be killed. America win the war at last because the British underestimated American soldiers, Americans did guerilla warfare and the British have to left the soldiers in the town when they won the battle.

Like when Korea was colonized by Japan, American colonists resisted their unfair occupation. The most useful method to show their desire to be an independent country is a declaring independence officially. Therefore, the Declaration of Independence on July 4. 1774 plays a significant role of American independence from England. However, the British government executed the resistors so declaring independence was extremely dangerous action. After the Declaration of Independence, American militia and continental military began to fight against the British military. Consequently, American military won. there were several reasons of victory. Firstly, the French military helped them, secondly, American military fought a guerrilla war.

The Declaration of Independence is most important history in America because it was first step to become an independence themselves and it led America to develop one of representative countries. However, the it was very dangerous to sign the Declaration of Independence because at that time, America was the colonies of England. The Declaration of Independence was treason and it could make England an enemy of America but they put up with risk for freedom and democracy. During the war between America and England, England surpassed in firepower and disciplined troops. On the other hand, America had militia and little regular army. So, England looked down on America’ army but America used different strategy, and the militia was strong than England’ thought. Therefore, America could win the war and achieve freedom and independence.

I agree with Jungmin’ opinion that the Declaration of Independence is very historical event in America to be the United States. Although they submitted their risk which fought with England, they really wanted to gain their own freedom and independence. As expected, the war was very fierce and cruel but America won. They could achieve freedom.

The Declaration of Independence was very important because it was the background of the United States. After American colonists declared their independence, they finally became one country. But at that time, signing it was very dangerous. If they lost and British soldiers found it, they couldn't be able to survive. There are several reasons that made America win the war. First of all, Britain underestimated America. Americans were stronger than they thought. Also, France helped America.

I agree with cutie pie's opinion. The America wasn't the perfect independent nation yet, when they were signing the Declaration of Independence so, like kyutae said, it was really dangerous.

Seongmin : Declaration of Independence is very important in American history since it set the corner stone of America being autonomous country. It was also a very dangerous action to take because at that time, declaring independence meant betraying against Britain and officially starting war against them. However, American won the battle as they adopts various military tactics such as Gurreilla warfare and cutting the supply line of the British army and so forth.

Seongmin : I agree with KT pointing out that declaration of Independence is a very important cornerstone of the US. He also said that french's reinforcement played significant role in America's winning the war. I am also on the same page on him about this matter.
