Four of Diamonds

American Declaration of Independence

The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

27 grievances are listed as reasons for separating the american colonies from the British crown.

Among those 27 reasons:

He (King George) has made judges dependent on his will alone, for ...their offices, and ...their salaries

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury

For transporting us beyond seas, to be tried for pretended offenses

For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

Find more in the new card game Quint: Early America Edition. Quint is a 5-suit deck of playing cards. The "Early America Edition" features numerous quotations, with original source references, from America's founders and more.

Reading American history is one thing. Being able to recall facts and events in the middle of a discussion is quite another. This "Early America Edition" Quint game is designed to strengthen memory while also proving a fun reminder of America's invaluable patriotic history. For others, it's an education.
