Presented here for the first time in one volume are the three founding documents of the United States and another that altered and divided the Union for a brief moment in history. • Declaration of Independence: Adopted by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, this may be the most famous angry letter in history. • Articles of Confederation: Soon after independence from England was declared, the Second Continental Congress instituted this first organizing document of the new United States, which was ratified in March 1781. • United States Constitution: This document replaced the Articles of Confederation on June 21, 1788. One of the most influential works of political philosophy and practicality ever written, it is the oldest national constitution still in use today, and continues to inspire freedom-loving peoples around the world. • Constitution of the Confederate States: This 1861 document organized the new nation created by the seceding slave states.
