In the mist of 1776-1877, did the United States carry out all the goals that were stated in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution? The Declaration of Independence and Constitution had many different goals and ideas in mind for the United States at the time. The United States partially realized the some of the values stated in the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, but also did accomplish some the goals mentioned in the documents. The principles in the Declaration of Independence were applied to some, and the major goals in the Constitution were not wholly realized.
Some of the goals that were partially realized were equality and women’s rights, some might say that these goals were or weren’t realized in the documents. The goal of everyone having rights and having equality was met in the declaration of independence and the constitution. It stated in the Declaration of independence “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal” (Doc A). This statement means that all people should be equality treated and have the same rights as everyone else. This quote is important because it shows that it’s obvious that all Americans are equal and should have the equal opportunity to do what they want. In the preamble of the constitution it states that “…secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity” (Doc C).
