    what are the 4 sections of the declaration of independence?

  • U.S History -

    it doesn't say anything about the four sections

  • U.S History -

    I'm not sure which sections your teacher wants. I see the Declaration broken into these parts:

    We hold these truths self-evident . . .
    Grievances against the king

  • U.S History -

    my u.s history book says that in this order:

    1) Preamble
    2) Declaration of Natural Rights
    3) List of Grievances
    4) Resolution of Independence by the United States

    but i kept on searching it on other websites and the websites kept on telling me different things, so i tried Jiskha and you also gave me a different answer, so i am confused???

  • U.S History -

    Yes. I just found this site delineating the four sections.


    I said the same thing, but in a more general way.

  • U.S History -

    oh ya u did. thanks a lot. =D

  • U.S History -

    You're welcome. :-)
