Sincerely, God Bless You and THE U.S.A.
I love historical sites and this seems to be a good one. However the war time line was a bit sparse. There was no mention of the Penobscot exhibition at all and a bit more on world events always helps to add context. Watching Freedom First on PBS tonight and wondering how many of the decaration signees were Masons, anyone know?

I really think that the Declaration of Independance is written very well, I am in 5th Grade, and we are learning about the Battle of Lexington and Concord and French and Indian War, and I thought I should write my opinion about the Declaration of Independance, I really like the people back then, and the soldiers know that are fighting for our freedom! I want to thank them all!

The words written in the original Declaration of Independence by the signatories, are as relevant in the twenty first century as they were in 1776. Those words will forever evoke a sense of purpose and justice wherever mankind is found in this universe, for eternity.

I think the Declartion of independance was a very importan piece of our history. The people that were involed in the Signing of this were importan to for example a john Adams and Benjamin Franklen signed it people like that. so overall if this was not part of our history today it could still be like it was back then.

The Declaration of Independence is a important part of history and I wonder what it would be like if it was never made.
The Declaration of Independence was and still is a very important to America. John Hancock played an important and very obnoxious part in the Declaration of Independence.
I don't understand why John Hancock signed his name so big compared to others.

The Declaration of Independance was, and still is very important. If our nation didn't have the couragous people that wrote, and signed it, the United States of America would not be free. We would be under British control. I am extremly happy that we have independance.

The Declaration of Independence changed this world and all the people in it.
The Declaration of Independence was a long thought out piece of writing, that freed colonies from the King.
i think this is fine peice of liberty and freedome at it shows how we are able to make are own choices and are own rights
I think the Declaration of Independence, is one of the best events that ever happened in history. If it wasn't for that we wouldn't have much freedom, and happiness.

I was surprised to find how long NY resisted joining the majority to sign the Declaration of Independence. They never did vote for it, they abstained! American history is so fascinating. I've been watching the mini-series "John Adams" on VuDu and it's both brilliant and moving. I'm so proud of my country's history. If only we would live up to those ideals instead of the crass commercialism that dominates our nation in the present time.

Very Good Site. Just my 2 cents: Do You believe you should correct your title? There is a difference between: 1. The Want, Will, and Hopes of one People ... and ... 2. The Want, Will, and Hopes of the People. One People Out of Many When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people (not a people, or all of the people, or a majority of people) to dissolve the political bands which have connected them (the one people) with another (their King, their own British brethren, and the rest of the colonist who were faithful to the King.), and to assume among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's GOD (GOD of Israel: Not Lucifer, Not Buddha, Not Mohammad, Not Animals, Not Rocks, Not Crystals, etc.) entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of Mankind requires that they (the one people who is the one particular people) should declare the causes which impel them (the one particular people) to the Separation.

I have no doubt that Thomas Jefferson was annointed by the very Holy Spirit of God. In very much the same fashion as were the writers of the books in the Holy Bible. Mr. Jefferson did us all a huge favor by respecting the consciousness or imagination in every individual regardless of origon on this Earth. Thank You Mr. J. And I ask each one of you, what are you doing to exercise our rights & freedoms in America today, in 'Our Generation'? We must exercise our Freedoms to keep them healthy for our children & their children! God's Love & Power, John 'Messenger'

I needed information for an introduction of the FDA for a school paper, and came across this website. I thought I would try to evoke the thought of ‘Had the founding fathers foreseen that the signing of the Declaration of Independence had started the carving of a new nation? Could the founding fathers conceive the thought that they had laid the corner stone to what is now the United States of American Federal Government, in turn created other government funded agencies, helping the citizens, continuing the original thoughts behind the beginnings of the Declaration of Independence? Was Thomas Jefferson, concerned about his health, prompting the ill-tempered remarks regarding the stable and houseflies he pass daily, walking from the Declaration House, (Graff House), to the Declaration House while writing the declaration of Independence. I found the layout of the website and the contents very interesting. I came to find the weather conditions on 07/04/1776, and four hours later I am signing the guest book on my departure! I will let you what my instructor thought of how I connected the Declaration of Independence to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA, or USFDA)!
