Question Description

I need help with a History question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

The Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson, states: “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….” This declaration called for a national independence, but not for all people.
