Primary Source Documents:

Declaration of Independence - Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776, the Declaration of Independence is at once the nation's most cherished symbol of liberty and Jefferson's most enduring monument. Here, in exalted and unforgettable phrases, Jefferson expressed the convictions in the minds and hearts of the American people.

The Sugar Act - The Sugar Act placed a 3-cent tax on sugar goods (such as cloth, wine, coffee and indigo) to the colonist and also caused local production to increase in the colonies, but colonists viewed it as unfair, and it was one of the causes leading to the American Revolution.

Colonial Coins - A distinguishing characteristic of a sovereign nation is the right to issue its own coins. America began exercising that right in 1792 by issuing Pattern Coins, in 1793 by issuing copper coins, in 1794 by issuing silver coins, and in 1795 by issuing gold coins.
