Abstract: The article is of historiographic nature. The Lithuanian historiography is classified into two parts. The first part deals with the authors who affirm, that the declaration of Lithuanian independence Act is a coincidence, which depends on the will and wishes of the German occupants at the end of the World War I. The second group includes those authors, who noticed the Lithuanian people's aspiration to restore their independence and independent republic long since the end of the nineteenth century. They tried, taking advantage of historical circumstances, to throw off the Russian and German oppression and develop an independent, democratic republic. The Act of February 16 exactly expressed the political aims of the group of Lithuanian intelligentsia and was a guiding star throughout 1918, until the Lithuanian government was formed. The aims of this day became a vital question for the whole nation, which managed to protect its independence in the wars with neighbours in 1919-1920.
