In 1776 there was a great decision made by the people who ran the government and this classic musical 1776 portrayed the great decision the writing of the constitution The movies plot is about the proceedings of the second continental congress as it debated on declaring independence from Britain The story begins as representatives including John Adams Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin from the 13 colonies meet in Philadelphia for the proceedings After one of the meetings where Adams is just pushed aside he begins to try to get more popular representatives to help him push for independence After many meeting and almost no proposal met Adams begins to write the Declaration only after it is written does everyone agree on it The three main characters of the musical were Benjamin Franklin John Adams and Thomas Jefferson John Adams was an early supporter of American independence from Britain He served as a delegate to Massachusetts at the Continental Congress He helped lay down the format for the declaration and defended the Declaration of Independence during the debate in congress Ben Franklin was a member of the Continental Congress and help to draft the Declaration He helped Jefferson as they wrote the document Thomas Jefferson was another member of the Second Continental Congress He was chosen by Adams Franklin and two others to write the first draft of the Declaration He wrote most of it and was helped little by Franklin Other than declaring Independence from Britain the document contained other things that were important to America at that time such as slavery There was a large vote on where to put slavery freedom Many of the men thought if signing independence also meant they were signing away the right to have slaves because of the slaves freedom I believe this movie is a good movie for people who know more about the history of the Declaration Making a musical on a subject this is weird
