We have a great school system. The school name is Breckinrindge County Middle School. It's a great school and there are loving people who go there. Everbody is very giving and they treat others with respect.
Kate Sebastian, Harned, Kentucky, Age 14 years-old [12-11-2003]

Hello. I came upon your site while researching the events surrounding the actual vote and signing of the declaration. I am confused by the statements on page 3 of "Jefferson's Account" in which he states that all members present signed (on the fourth). I have read several biographies in which the historians state that the declaration was not actually signed untill the approved copy was engrossed, that only Hancock and Thomas (Sec) signed. Can you help clarify this discrepancy...? Perhaps a scan of the source. Thank you so much for your help. Sincerely, Jayne
jayne ollin [12-11-2003]

You should post pictures that can be seen close up and printed freely
Amber, Louisville, Ky age 13 [12-11-2003]

I wonder how many teachers of the authors of so many of the comments below will be able to inform their students that the Declaration of Independence is practically a dead letter. The Republicans, the Democrats, the advocates of the welfare state and other collectivist programs have nearly killed what the Founders created. Compared with Congress, George III was a nice guy.

Daniel [12-11-2003]

Excellent, comprehensive site. This is what history should be.
Kiarra Parker, History Student [12-11-2003]

An invaluable document, so clearly written, so frequently ignored and contravened. Especially, that individual rights are inalienable and that the purpose of government is to protect those rights. Instead, we have governments, local, state and federal, violating individual rights on a massive scale. Even before Ashcroft (and Reno), though he has put us in the express lane to full-blown fascism. If he had been in power in 1984, Orwell's predictions would have been fulfilled on time.
Joe Wright, New York City [12-11-2003]

Letizia [12-11-2003]

This period of early America is. to me, the most interesting. It is fascinating reading about our breakaway from England and our own Revolution. It is also intertesting reading autobiographies and biographies of men like Franklin, Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, JQ Adams as well as Paul Revere, John Marshall etc.etc. Thanks for your great website.

anonymous [11-27-2003]

There are no other documents that tell forever the virtues of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness and how to protect these rights than the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, and The Bill of Rights. I at times regret our government has voted to dilute so many rights, and misinterpretations, as to weaken our moral fiber, give minor children undisciplined willful power over their authority figures,as to leave our country vulernable to ignorance,laziness, sloppiness, and selfishness to the point of total disregard of the spirit of intent these documents speak of. Where reelection is the primary goal and personal wealth and fame are the main agendas of most,not all, politicians, Not the welfare of the of the common good of all people, with no real regard to future generations as our forefathers so famously demonstrated and modeled with grace and honor.

The information this website provided on Benjamin Harrison is completely inaccurate. For one: Benjamin Harrison never lived to sign the Declaration of Independence!2nd: It was his grandfather who was William Henry Harrison. And And for the biggest part: only common sense is needed to know that it isn't possible for the 23rd president's son to be the 9th president! I mean Duh!

Please help me find a place to buy a copy suitable for framing. After reading the bio's of the men that signed I am very impressed with their courage and wisdom. Wouldn't it be great to meet them? Obviously it's impossible, but... David McClough's book on John Adams, no relative, is a marvelous read. Check your library or buy it, it's still in print.

Patricia Joanne [09-16-2003]

My family is related to this person, we came out of Tipperary when the potato famine hit. I have always believed in my heretige and the proud name of Burke. I looked up our name in books to trace us back to where I should have been. My bio father worked for Warner Brothers for 20 years, my grandfather created the monorail in California and the material for artificial limbs. I have been an artist and computer person for years. I would love to go to Ireland and look at where I should have been if they would not have left because of the economic reasons. We had castles that I have never seen and truly miss. We were great land owners. If you look at old maps of Ireland you see the Burke name everywhere, I am proud of that but do not have a way to connect with people we should have known in this life. It is sad to walk this path and never see the people I love in my heart but have not seen face to face. All my blessings to those I may never see.

I think your site is very imformitive and helpful. There is not one thing you leave out! Thank you for making it clear that this country stared off with people who belived in our rights and freedom for all. I am pretty sure those men would roll over in thier graves if they knew how America is slowly abolishing thier rights and fredom they fought so hard for, just so we do not offend any persons that do not belive we should have freedom of lifestyle or religon. Sorry if my God ofends anyone, but now I feel like oppression is in play here now that I am not allowed to pray in public, all becaus those foreigners whom bombed us is offened. If you do not like America or our Declartion or constitution, GET OUT! Save the freedom for those who Really belives in it!

Doing a little research on my lunch hour. I'm wondering why people get all bent out of shape when someone mentions GOD ! (Ten Commandments news story). It seems that GOD is mentioned in the Declaration of Independence, and the last paragraph seemed to indicate that the founders felt that "Devine Providence" was behind them. Why does a country that was founded with GOD in mind, become so intolerant of the mention of GOD? Why can't our government acknowledge GOD?

Leonard Meisel [08-21-2003]

OK, this site is really good and everything but I have found a slight problem with something. "1774 After the French Indian War the British Government decided to reap greater benefits from the colonies. The colonies were pressed with greater taxes without any representation in Britain. This eventually lead to the Boston Tea Party. In retaliation the British passed several punative acts aimed at bringing the colonies back into submission of the King." The part about not being represented in Parliament is not true. British law says that every member of Parliament represents every British subject so the Colonists were technically represented.

Veronica [08-17-2003]

It makes interesting reading. I hope some of the other readers take the time to do some other research on US history. It's not quite as staight forward as some of your visitors seem to think, judging by their comments. For example, I am amazed that Jefferson ( a signatory) for one, could talk of the freedom of men, when he "owned" a great many slaves. Fathering children by one of them, and even keeping those children in bondage as slaves. Slavery was not abolished in "the land of the free" until the 1860s, after it was abolished in Britain but just before Cuba and Brazil. Was it not the "proclomation line" introduced by the collonial government at the time to protect the lands of the native americans from land speculators, major ones being George Washington and Ben Franklin (signatories), that was a trigger for a declaration. Once independant, these laws were ignored and the land was up for grabs and the indians dispossessed. Some men were obviously freer than others! It goes to show that America, even then, was good at PR. There were a great many factors that led to the war for independance. It was not just a struggle for freedom, that is the naive "Hollywood" take on it. The war split communities and even families with many americans fighting on the loyalist side. Why did the continental army struggle to be clothed and fed in their own country if they were freedom fighters of the people? Was it true that a number of the members of that first congress acted as agents in the recieving of money and arms from France before and during the war,thus making vast fortunes in "commission"? And is it not ironic that the war was funded and, to a large extent, fought by the most oppressive regime in the world at the time, the "Ancient Regime" of pre revolutionary France? A lady of the time once said"All this talk of liberty, is just a change of masters". Were the earliest presidents elected by the people, or part of the ruling elite at the time, part of a select club. "I doubt if the oppressed ever fight for freedom, merely the power to oppress others"
sidney, England [08-17-2003]

We as men and women of this country should never forget what this nation stands for adn should always be handed down to our children and theirs. We should never forget that the cost of freedom has a great price and we should always remember those that paid that price.

My G Grandmother was Abby Willing Johnson 1845 to 1888), daughter of Luke Morris Johnson and Anna Paul and a Granddaughter of the Morris's of Germantown, PA. She was also a cousin of Ava Willing who married John Jacob Astor in 1892. Iam looking for the decendent line from Robert Morris and Charles Willing to see if there are relationships with my G Grandmother. Also, I think there possibly is a relationship with Luke Morris and his wife Elizabeth Willing. Any help you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated- Ed Smith

I think the declaration is an inspiration to America.Without it we would still be under the unfair control of England.

It is great to be able to understand the depth of the constitution as it is written here on this site.
katie, dana point ca 92629 [07-25-2003]

I think that the Decleration of Independence is no more than a re-hash of the scottish Decleration of Arbroath written many centuries before. Nearly half of the signers came from Scottish ancestry and i havent read 1 mention of this fact anywhere on the site. The Decleration of Independence owes a lot to the Scottish original. This wont get printed though..thanx for listening
steve, bacelona, old [07-25-2003]

After looking thru some of the information about the signers of the declation i know that some of the signers had a degree in releigon but i was not able to find it mentioned on your site. Was i missinformed about there education. If at all possible could u please let me know. Thanks Marc
Marcus Laseter [07-25-2003]

As a direct descendent of signer Carter Braxton as well as Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall, I am extremely pleased with the information provided on your site. Education is essential in preserving the significance of this historic day, and your site enables future generations to learn even more from our nation's history. I would also like to encourage other descendents of signers who visit to become members of D.S.D.I. (Descendents of the Signers of The Declaration of Independence). My brother (Douglas Marshall Braxton II), sister (Sara Braxton Keith) and I are lifetime members of the Virginia chapter, and it provides a wonderful acknowledgement of a family’s legacy for your children. In signing your guest book, I would also like to honor my father James Philips Braxton and grandfather Douglas Marshall Braxton in memoriam, as their lives were an extension of the life led by Carter Braxton... one filled with dignity, gratitude, integrity, sacrifice, and a never ending generosity to help others less fortunate and oppressed.

It is very important in these days for us to remember how this couintry was formed and for what reason. Many people have forgotten and have allowed themselves to make statements of emotion and little fact. Both the declaration and the constitution are not known by most. Some things are in danger

I remember studying about the Declaration of Independence & the Revolutionary War when I was a kid, but this was the first time that I read about the biographies of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. These men were true Patriots & by signing they put thier lives on the line. I'm truly greatful to these men who gave birth to this great nation of ours. God Bless the USA!

Ellen Lewit [07-10-2003]

I was moved by the movie "1776" that I saw today on the television. I found John Adams to be my new role model. If it wasn't for his persistance and commitment, we'd all be speaking the Queen's English today. For I too have a cause to fight to keep open our non-profit organization "The Somerville Community Computer Center." We are a group of volunteers who service the people of Somerville and the surrounding cities and towns and that no one should be denied the use of or the knowledge of technology for socio-economic reasons. A donation per person of $2.00 is suggested but not manditory. We have to relocate by August 31st and with no money or funding it's going to be an up hill battle. So I know exactly what John Adams felt like! We are a committed group to the cause. With commitment and persistance, all things are possible!
Pat, Somerville, MA 02144 [07-10-2003]

It is a sad fact indeed that no-one knows or even seems to care anymore what these men sacrificed for our freedoms today.

So very proud to be an American, and to be able to view details of our Sacred Declararion of Independence on this hollowed day, and yet I sorrow that only a few in America will remember the significance of this day, and the the cost to the great leaders of our country that signed the Declaration of Independence ... "to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them ..."

JUST THOUGHT IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO SEE THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE ON THIS JULY 4th 2003, AFTER READING ABOUT THE WEB SITE IN THE PAPER; FAIRLY NEW INTERNET USER AND WHAT BETTER WAY TO CELERBRATE THE 4th THAN TO USE A NEW WAY VIA THE COMPUTER. I'M SO THANKFUL AND BLESSED TO HAVE BEEN BORN IN A FREE NATION AND BELIEVE THAT TRULY OUR ONE AND ONLY GOD HAS BLESSED THE USA BECAUSE OF OUR UNRELENTING SEARCH AND PRESERVATION OF FREEDOM FOR ALL MEN. WHAT A WONDERFUL COUNTRY WE HAVE AND WHAT MARVELOUS INSIGHT AND FORESIGHT OF OUR FOUNDING FATHERS IN SEEKING TO ESTABLISH A FOUNDATION, THAT HAS BEEN PROVEN BY TIME, TO BE THE BEST WAY. LET'S JUST HOPE AND PRAY THAT OUR LEADERS AND ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT SEEK TO INTERPRET THE LAWS AND IMPOSE THEM WILL BE GUIDED BY THE WISDOM FROM ABOVE AND NOT BY ANY OTHER MOTIVES. WE ARE A BLESSED NATION AND WE NEED TO BE A BLESSING TO EVERYONE WITH WHOM WE COME IN CONTACT. MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA AND REMEMBER THOSE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE GIVEN SO MUCH TO PROTECT OUR FREEDOMS AND THOSE THAT ARE NOW DOING THE SAME, WHEREVER THEY SERVE!

Thank you for providing this site. So many people are unaware of the freedoms and events upon which this great country was founded. If this knowledge is lost, then our freedoms will be lost. It is important for all citizens to become familiar with the history, laws, and important historical documents of our country.

From my childhood, I recall reading a comic book containing the Disney story of "Ben and Me" in which the mouse Amos is the primary author of the Declaration of Independence (he whispers the words into Framklin's ear while perched in Frankin's three corner hat). Each time I read the Declaration of Independence, which is at least annually on July 4, I enjoy the image of those grand ideas coming from the pen of that feisty mouse! Was that story ever made into a cartoon film?

I somehow wish that John Adams would have written the document. Perhaps it may not have been as polished, but when the man who writes your statement of independence from the mother country is a practitioneer of the most vile of all travesties, it certainly leaves a bad taste in our mouths.
