Why did Thomas Jefferson write the Declaration of
Independence?

asked by Peanut
  1. Was it because he wanted to show loyalty to Great Britain?

    What do you think?

  2. Might it be that he was considered the best writer on the committee? The question is better if phrased about why the Second Continental Congress wanted to write such a declaration.
