I have been told that I'm a derect decendent of Patrick Henry. My Aunt Cherri Henry showed me a familey tree a few years ago. I have been looking for it again. I can not seem to find it.
Stephanie Logan Henry, Willits Ca. [06-26-2006]

I happen to agree with Benjamin Banneker when he encouraged that we have a "Department of Peace". Since we have a department of war and we certainly as a nation have been consistently involved in war. Paerhaps a Department of Peace we foster our ability as a nation to be creators and of peace. We today need to declare peace. Thanks

I truely believe it is time for the American People to get back on track and either support our government or put their right to vote into effect and elect a whole new government. As I see it our most of our current officials are in office for what they can get from it instead of serving the people. As a paid position, most of them should be fired. I firmly believe that these elected officials should not get their heads out of the mud and work for the people, God knows most of them seem to be there only for themselves. And I believe that no matter what religion we are from, we should pray daily for our God to help our elected officials to do what is correct for our country or get out.

My aunt received a communication long ago telling her about the connection. I'd love to know whether it is true or not.
Eileen Margaret Nelson, I believe that my great-grandfather, John Benedict Nelson, who arrived in Australia in the 1850's was a descendant of this thomas Nelson. How can I find out is this is so? [06-24-2006]

I think that without the presadents and the Declaration we would'nt have what we have. The movir National Treasure I was amased that they used what looked exactly like the Declaration.

I have a Research Paper to do for my History 110 class on The Declaration of Independence. We have to dissect it, using facts and opinions. I figured this would be a very good site to do research.

I just watched the PBS special on the preservation efforts taken by the now coservators of the declartion and the constitution. Ii was shocked and saddened by the faded condition of the declaration and their decision not to do anything except to repair a torn corner.
Lauren Hunter, Las Vegas, NV 52 Forensic Anthropologist [06-19-2006]

It was good. I was looking for the signing of the declaration for my extra credit!
Ashley, 11 DOB-April 19, 1995 [06-17-2006]

June 15, 2006 Last night the PBS television program Nova broadcast a piece about new display encasements being made to store the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the United States Constitution. As interesting as this was I felt somewhat embarrassed that I no longer can cite any of the many grievances against King George III Thomas Jefferson listed, when he wrote the Declaration of Independence, especially since there was a time when I could. Even as one of those whose major in college required comprehensive knowledge about these documents and other American history, Political Science, I had learned these grievances written in the Declaration of Independence for my own information. In my American soul the Declaration of Independence, and the other two "birth certificates" of our nation, is part of me. So, in my embarrassment, I decided to once again study the whole Declaration of Independence this time to remind myself of what we as Americans hold very dear. In my more than half century on this earth, now, I've seen many civil rights borne from those few words penned by Thomas Jefferson "We hold these truths to be self-evident..." Now I think I've been around long enough to be able to say these deeply-moving words of Thomas Jefferson he wrote because John Adams believed he was the better writer, between the two of them, still stir the soul to action when it comes to not only Americans but also others demanding "their" civil rights. As I pondered the meaning of the Declaration of Independence and its genesis from the Revolutionary War, and also the Revolutionary War's flags recently returned to America from Britain, I thought about the people of Iraq. It occurred to me that maybe some of them might like a better understanding of America and our democracy and our freedoms we gained not unlike the way they as Iraqis are gaining some liberties for themselves--through the battles of war--and considered an idea. We should--in my opinion-- print up a couple million "pocket" copies of the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, and the United States Constitution and distribute these to the people of Iraq. Though this might be considered sort of like giving a crash course in American democracy and freedoms we learn about--which for most of us starts before we even learn to talk and walk--some native Iraqis I'm sure would welcome the information. Even if it conflicted with things written in the Koran, though it's difficult to imagine any God would be opposed to his people being independent and democratic, I'm convinced some Iraqi people would love getting an up-close look at the American documents that give us our freedoms and democracy. Thank You, Kathy Caudle East St. Louis, IL

It's a wonderful idea to put this information on the Net for the Public to access. It's a very encouraging piece of document for those who feel repressed and are trying to find reasons to get out from under repression.

R Best [06-04-2006]

i think that the fight for independence was a great thing not because many died because we would not of been here, the best thomas jefferson had hope for the usa to have independence and he was a great respectful man and if i had lived back then i would of been the first person to sighn it and i love the way how the loyalistdid not want the colonist to have independence and they had it all. i just think that the way the loyaists acted to the colonists way wrong independence is not a mistake. i really believe in it! -!

In reading the Declaration of Independence I think our nation should read this document and compare the situations of this time in history to what were the circumstances in 1776.

Eric Scott Ferrenberg, 123 quest lane latrobe, PA 15650 Age 15 [05-26-2006]

This was a coalition of brave men. Strong willed men. Men who may have disagreed on minor things, but agreed on the major things. Such as Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Our Country, again, needs a band of men this strong who can come to agreement on core issues like immigration, capitalism, and freedom. God Bless America
Travis Tennison, Branson, MO [05-26-2006]

I just finished watching the movie "1776" It is based on the Broadway play by the same name. It compelled me to come look at the actual document. It is very interesting to know the story behind the actual document. Go rent the movie!

I have been blessed by living in a country where people believed in standing up for what was needed for the betterment of all people. I wonder sometimes if at this time in our countries history if we don't close our eyes and believe that all that needed done is complete. It scares me that we allow our elected officials so much power over us and our individual lives. It's also my belief that how things are today within our gov't. is not what our founding fathers had in mind.
Mary Edwards, New Castle, IN [05-25-2006]

Declaration of independence is something like gold for the history of US
flamur, Prishtina,18, [05-25-2006]

Campbell [05-24-2006]

The sheer bravery of the men who signed it still inspires me today, for they knew if caught they would suffer a horrible death as their brave stand would have been deemed treason against the crown.

Nicolette [05-17-2006]

please Vote - Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. All citizen's stand-up and be counted - U.S.A. is your land.

I am a treaser hunter. I hunt for the doller bills. I read the D of I carefully and have 26 copies of the D of I and 3 copies of the 100$ and 1 copy of the 2$ bill. I take emy work very seriousely. I think if the other americans care about the founding fathers and country's past and history they should work as I- mabey not as hard but good. I know that this is not the statis quo but still...

On the back of a U.S two dollar bill is a picture of a Black Man at the signing of the Declaration of Independence! What was his name and who was he? What titles did he hold? Why is he never mention in history but is clearly engraved on U.S. currency showing the greatest document of America? Please help me with this history project. Thank you in advance. D. Anthony

I think this is a good wabsite that everybody need to come on. know the History of the Declaration Of Independence and just to know what the men that sign it had to put with.It wasn't like they just sign it and that was it.No some of them were killed or there family were tooking from them.To me thats something that everybody should be thankful for.even people of color Becuase with out them we'll still be slaves.to thats something that everbody should thank about ..what these man did for you..
