Now that I have read the comments by others, many by youthful readers, I think I need to expound just a little on sometimes overlooked significance of the Declaration. Abraham Lincoln put it succinctly, "There are two principles that have stood face to face from the beginning of time - one is right, the other is wrong - and they will ever continue to struggle. One is the common right of humanity, and the other is the divine right of kings." Jefferson's Declaration turned the world upside down. It rang the death knell to the divine right of kings by stating that governments derive their powers from the consent of the governed and that all men are created equal. Thus political power no longer came from heaven. The Declaration set the stage for the first secular government in history, and, when our government was formed, it was carried through by separating the institutions of religion from those of the state. Every religion was given equal footing and no favoritism. This is the principle which has facilitated the remarkable success of religion in the United States - as compared to its languishing state in the Old World. This topic (expanded upon of course) would make an excellent topic for a student's paper.
Charles Sumner, Nashville TN [06-22-2003]

I appreciate the excellent information provided here. I am somewhat appalled by the misspellings and errors in the commentary. In the text by Jefferson, I understand that he may have (by our standards) also made some errors; however, I wonder whether some of them were made by the transcriber. I will offer to improve the commentary, but without access to Jefferson's original information, I would not attempt to alter the text you present as his.
Charles Sumner, Nashville TN [06-22-2003]

has been rumored i have william williams and william hooper in my family tree,have no proof
deedee nicklas [06-22-2003]

I am looking for something I read once and didn't save. It was a very short, like maybe a few paragraphs, statistics regarding the signers of the Declaration of Independence showing how much they sacrificed for their country. Does anyone have that?
Belinda [06-22-2003]

i used your site to do a paper on the signers of the declartion of independence. it helped a lot.

Marie Pope, William Hooper/NC Signer descendent [06-10-2003]

I think the Declaration of Independece was very imprtant for thousands of people who wanted to be free, but couldn`t say anything because they didn`t want to be punish by the soldeirs

angel davis, girl [06-08-2003]

I like your website a lot. It helps me some. I memorized part of the declaration: When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earht the seperate and equal station to which the laws of nature and natures God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind....ETC! I get good grades

Sights like this one help to educate people of a time in which tyranny reigned and few were willing to take a stand. Thomas Jefferson and the other signers of the Declaration are an inspiration and make us proud to be Americans. Should ever a time such as this arrive again, we can only hope for the bravery and intelligence to assert are "inalienable rights" and rise against tyrants of our time. This sight is Great!Thanks

I enjoyed the page, especially the biographies. Supposedly my family branch of the Taylor's are descended from George Taylor that signed the Declaration. I myself have not traced the line, but it's an interesting possibility anyway.

I am a historian in Monticello New york while I was researching the rich,very famous history O f Monticello New York,I am reminded of the first Royal Kingdon,People seem to think of Royality as in England..No dont be mistaken its right her in Sullivan county,WHich was once called Ulster County..Queen Anne and her heir walked on the soil of this very still regal town.(WHich in fake is called still the British Commonwealth)..What I like to add is right befdre the signatures in the declaration of independence,the signers,They were obligated to take care of the divine providnece which is Monticello New York and the Hardenbergh patent.King Hardenbergh ..GOd himself has walked on the holy grounds of Monticello New York..Iam a witness..Very divine ways we still go by in this part of the worlds..The most holiest place in the World...

I have a friend whose father, a Dickinson, was descended from John Dickinson (1732-1808), a member of the Continental Congress, and I wanted to know more about him. Thank you for so much information at your site. I recently taped one of Bob Villa's TV programs that I knew I would not be able to view at its scheduled time. I plan to send the tape to my friend, for during it Villa visited Winterthur with a film crew. The docent pointed out that the two gold- brocade-covered sofas on each side of the fireplace in the parlor were from John Dickinson's home! I regret that I am not descended from any of the Declaration of Independence signers, but am sure two and possibly more of my ancestors fought in the Revolutionary war. One of my husband's ancestors fought under Washington and one of his sons went on to be one of the co-founders of Elizabethtown, KY. Among my ancestors are the Black Douglases of Scotland, and John, son of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, whose line goes back to Rollo the Viking...One of my stepmother's ancestors came over on the Mayflower.... Fascinating subjects, history and genealogy. Thanks!
anonymous, Age 85, Nashville, TN. [05-03-2003]

Outstanding resource. I recommend for inclusion the following eloquent expression of the principles embodied in the Declaration of Independence and the related documents (and those that followed): Mr. Justice Jackson, for the Supreme Court in 1943, in the case of West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette (involving a compulsory flag salute): National unity as an end which officials may foster by persuasion and example is not in question. The problem is whether under our Constitution compulsion as here employed is a permissible means for its achievement. Struggles to coerce uniformity of sentiment in support of some end thought essential to their time and country have been waged by many good as well as by evil men. Nationalism is a relatively recent phenomenon but at other times and places the ends have been racial or territorial security, support of a dynasty or regime, and particular plans for saving souls. As first and moderate methods to attain unity have failed, those bent on its accomplishment must resort to an ever-increasing severity. [319 U.S. 624, 641] As governmental pressure toward unity becomes greater, so strife becomes more bitter as to whose unity it shall be. Probably no deeper division of our people could proceed from any provocation than from finding it necessary to choose what doctrine and whose program public educational officials shall compel youth to unite in embracing. Ultimate futility of such attempts to compel coherence is the lesson of every such effort from the Roman drive to stamp out Christianity as a disturber of its pagan unity, the Inquisition, as a means to religious and dynastic unity, the Siberian exiles as a means to Russian unity, down to the fast failing efforts of our present totalitarian enemies. Those who begin coercive elimination of dissent soon find themselves exterminating dissenters. Compulsory unification of opinion achieves only the unanimity of the graveyard. It seems trite but necessary to say that the First Amendment to our Constitution was designed to avoid these ends by avoiding these beginnings. There is no mysticism in the American concept of the State or of the nature or origin of its authority. We set up government by consent of the governed, and the Bill of Rights denies those in power any legal opportunity to coerce that consent. Authority here is to be controlled by public opinion, not public opinion by authority. The case is made difficult not b ecause the principles of its decision are obscure but because the flag involved is our own. Nevertheless, we apply the limitations of the Constitution with no fear that freedom to be intellectually and spiritually diverse or even contrary will disintegrate the social organization. To believe that patriotism will not flourish if patriotic ceremonies are voluntary and spontaneous instead of a compulsory routine is to make an unflattering estimate of the appeal of our institutions to free minds. We can have intellectual individualism [319 U.S. 624, 642] and the rich cultural diversities that we owe to exceptional minds only at the price of occasional eccentricity and abnormal attitudes. When they are so harmless to others or to the State as those we deal with here, the price is not too great. But freedom to differ is not limited to things that do not matter much. That would be a mere shadow of freedom. The test of its substance is the right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order. If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein. If there are any circumstances which permit an exception, they do not now occur to us. We think the action of the local authorities in compelling the flag salute and pledge transcends constitutional limitations on their power and invades the sphere of intellect and spirit which it is the purpose of the First Amendment to our Constitution to reserve from all official control.

I am really interested in Edward Rutledge not only because John Cullum portrayed him in one of my favorite musicals, 1776, but because Edward (Neddy) Rutledge has an air about him that makes him very appealing. And he must have been very intelligent indeed to have been elected into congress at such a young age! Good job on your information. It helped me learn something new about Neddy Rutledge, of South Carolina, today

On the signing of the Declaration of Independence you have left out one person and it is George Washington he goes under the state of Virginia because my history teacher told us and the reason he was not able to sign it was becasue he was off fighting in the war so if you could please put him under Virginia I would be more than pleased. Thank you. The 8th graders at my school are copying the Declaration of Independence and we are doing a lot more. Hey by the way you know how when John Hancock signed the Declaration and he put a doodle under his name what is that called? Well hey thanks for listening to me. Love Ginny Townsend

Can anyone answer this question?The Arco gas station on the corner of Martin Luther King (MLK) and Bonanza is sporting a new, super huge American flag replacing the old dirty, ragged one that was put there a year ago. One thing struck me as being peculiar ... it has 24 stars and I forgot to count the stripes ... the question is: What do 24 stars represent? There were four down and six across. I mentioned this at the Post and nobody seemed to have an answer.

The following passages taken from the "Declaration of Independence" could clearly be used to describe the status of the USA today: "...but when a long train of abuses & usurpations reduces them, (the people) it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government & to provide new Guards for their future security & alter their System of Government." "To prove this,let Facts be submitted to a candid world:""For imposing taxes on us without our consent.""He (the Government) has erected a multitude of New Offices, & sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people & eat out their substance.""He (the Government)is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and Perfidy, scarcely paralled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation." When I read the Declaration of Independence in its entirety for the first time today, it seems as though it's time for the People to band together & write another one; calling our present-day Government to answer. I believe it was Thomas Jefferson who said the People would need to have a Revolution every 200 years in order to bring the Government in check, as he predicted that they would get out of control again. Need I say more????

The history of the American Revolution is lopsided towards WASP founders alleged to be White Anglo Saxon Protestants, whereas our revision as peace researchers tends to show bulk of European included nine Ulster born generals were from North Ireland exodus of Presbyterians fleeing Britain's Test Acts to conform, so WASP really means White Angry Scottish Presbyterians - from Ireland. Their determination to avoid America having a theocratic capital like the one they had fled led to the long debate on the Residency Bill, i.e where the President would live, and the great compromise - none of the usual places - but a virgin capital built in the bush. It has been copied in many other British colonies, Ottawa, Canberra, Abuja most recent, while Malaysia now following suit and we feel this might be solution to Ireland, Israel-Palestine, Cyprus. Religious and ethnic differences within a perceived country turn to harmony when the centre of power in not in either camp. All blessings. Irish Parliament Trust, Reg charity 328665

how can mr jefferson write about all men being created equal if he was a slavebearer? i don't understand him esp. since he fathered sally hemming's child.

Interesting site, especially the proposed Union between GB and Colonies. Good to see that you got rid of those nasty taxes with the help of those nice French.

Thanks for printing the Dec. Of Independence. Exciting words, initiating an exciting country. I wanted to reread the Declaration, as I'm reading John Adams, by McCullough.

I like history and I enjoy watching the history channel and eating a big bowl of Chef mommy made it! I am related to John Paul least that is what I tell my history classes. It's all a joke....i always joke. Also I try to do the worm but I miss and land on my chest and get it all bruised. Anyway, US history rocks, even though I wasn't too interested in it when I did my undergraduate studies...but now I love it!
