The Declaration of Independence and the united States of America

This is a short blog to clarify the invalid claims of people that the Declaration of Independence first coined the term United States of America. Only the ignorant read the lead-in of the Declaration in that manner. Note that it says thirteen united States of America. The adjectives thirteen and united are both lower case because they merely describe the number of states and fact that they are united in this declaration NOT that they are united in a single government, a Union, or what have you. The United States of America as a "style' first appeared in the Articles of Confederation. If you still think the Declaration brought about the use of the style as the "United States of America", I suggest you go back and get a proper education in the grammar and usage of the English language 'cause you have failed.
