Marques O'Neil Duggans [05-08-2004]

you made a mistake on the page that is titled sugar act. the mistake that you made was in the sentence that follows: under the Molasses act colonial merchants had been required to pay a tax of six pence per gallon. when in deed it should been written under the molasses act colonial merchants had been required to pay a tax of six cents per gallon.

I had a dream about a month ago that I was at the Boston Tea Party and Patrick Henry came out from the crowd, raised his hands and shouted, "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!" Then I was in Independence Hall and witnessed the signing of the Declaration of Independence. I feel our country is on the wrong path and that our government needs to go back to its origins and examine where we are and what we meant to be. We need to go back to the form of government our forefathers set forth for to be. We are far from it and going farther down the slippery slope. We don't need career politicians accumalating their own power, we need term limits with men that have vision for the what's best for the country, for everyone, not for pork-barrel spending on pet projects and political favors. We are in trouble and in dire need of change! I am asking for the Providence of God Almighty, in Whom we Trust, to sovereignly intervene in our government and in the moral decay that we have fallen into. Most Sincerely, Gail L. Maimone

A great source of information
Barbara Wilson, Perth Western Australia [04-25-2004]

As not only a student of history - but also a lover of it - I have to say I would expect much more from this site. Especially when it is ran from an organization such as Independence Hall. I was really disappointed with the sections regarding the Pre-Revolution era (Sons of Liberty, Committees of Correspondence, etc). It seems as though these entries are not only light but also quite weak. Out of Five Stars I'll give One and a Half... Much better could be done with our very rich history. Sorry

Richard, Age 18 [04-21-2004]

The Declaration of Independence is really an amazing document. But it really is a shame that the people of our country take for granted everything that our founding fathers worked so hard to accomplish. I wish that the people of our wonderful nation would become more involved with our government. As a sophmore in college it amazes me to see how many people do lack interest in our government. I wish that everyone would take time to vote and become more involved. Because the people of this nation create our government, and it is the PEOPLES responsibility.
Natasha, Texas [04-21-2004]

Good info. Concise
Mike Bernhardt, Texas high school Soc. Stu. teacher [04-21-2004]

Lauren [04-11-2004]

I used to have a replica of the Declaration of Independence growing up.... It was printed on high quality parchment paper and the only real difference from the real thing was the word "copy" finely typed on the bottom and the flawles look to the document. I also had a copy of the Gettysburg address and a copy a civil war map. I wish that I had kept theses replicas as they are a big part of my childhood but as i moved out to Oklahoma, I somehow lost them..I like that i can get on websites like this to see the eral thing though yet still long to get my hands on replicas like the ones I once had in my posession.

I am, presently, working in Bagdad, Iraq. This morning, one of our Local National security guards asked me for a book on American traditions, language and the like. The Declaration of Independence seemed to be the best place for someone who has never experienced democracy to start. I thank God for a site like this, where i can print out this important document, not only for him, but because I want to be more familiar, as well. Please, be thankful for the liberties that you have. And pray for the Iraqies, as well as we "expats". Thanks.

Button Gwinnett was born in England around 1735. He came to America, residing briefly in Charleston, and in 1765 acquired a large tract of land in Georgia. Gwinnett enjoyed little success in farming or business, but found a footing in the revolutionary politics of his adopted colony. He was engaged in a long-standing political rivalry with Lachlan McIntosh, a soldier and leader who would attain highest rank in the Georgia militia and in state politics. Gwinnett was respected figure, however. In 1776 he was appointed commander of Georgia's continental militia (a post that he was forced to decline, owing to political faction), and also elected to attend the Continental Congress. Quite soon after he signed the Declaration, he returned home, where he hoped to gain appointment, once again, to the leadership of the Georgia militia. The appointment went instead to his rival. Gwinnett served in the Georgia legislature where he was involved in drafting a constitution for the new state, but also in strenuous efforts to destroy the office of McIntosh. The legislature adjourned in February of 1777 and handed control over the Council of Safety. Gwinnett succeeded Archibald Bulloch as president of the council soon afterward. He then lead an abortive attempt to invade Florida, in order to secure Georgia's southern border. That adventure was thwarted by Lachlan McIntosh and his brother George, and Gwinnett was charged with malfeasance. He was cleared of wrongdoing as he ran an unsuccessful campaign for Governor. Soon afterward, his honor challenged in public by McIntosh, he offered a duel. They met outside of Savanna on May 16, 1777, where both were wounded. McIntosh ultimately survived, Button Gwinnett died three days later at the age of forty-two.

Have you ever heard the expression "sign your John Hancock here" when folks want you to sign your name? John Hancock was the first person to sign the Declaration of Independence, and his signature is definitely the largest. Why did he sign his name so darn big? Maybe it was because he was president of the Continental Congress, which was the governing body of the original thirteen colonies. Maybe because he was the first to sign it, so he had lots of room. Maybe he was bigheaded. Only John Hancock knows for sure.

Why is it that a few people can complain about the Pledge of Allegiance and the fact that we have the 10 commandments in a school or court house. Since when does the few tell us what we should do?? Millions of people of all religions want to keep God in our lives. Why can't the majority tell the few to go someplace else if they are so offended by any mention of God. We are the United States of America and we are here because of our desire to be free to pray if we want to. Our world is so messed up now because of the few people who took religion out of school. Our kids don't have God or his rules to guide them. I feel it is time we tell everyone that we want God in everything, WE are the majority!

I am preparing a short paper on Freemasonry and the American Revolution. Some Masonic historians would have us believe that Freemasonry was entirely responsible for the Revolution. Whilst I am aware that Freemasonry played a very important role in the structure of early American society and that many Freemasons were involved (on both sides) of the struggle for Independence, I am anxious to separate fact from myth. As a UK citizen, I wonder what might have happened had the British Government taken a more balanced attitude towards the grievances of the colonists. Undoubtedly, America would still have become independent (eventually) btu might it have become and remained part of the (British) Commonwealth? I would like to hear the views of US citizens and, particularly, US Freemasons. I would add that I greatly value the warm relationship between our countries.

As a criminologist, I never forget the wording of the Declaration of Independance. As a criminologist, I consistently remind others that: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." These words were used almost verbatim to create the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution. I also found out that I am a direct decendant of Geroge Ross, through my maternal grandfather. This site is exceptional!

I think that Abraham Clark is a very cool person i have to do a report on him in school because we are learning about the Declaration of Independance so our teacher gave us a signer and we have to find info. its the coolest thing ever i found a lot about Abraham like when he died and when he was born or his hometown state and things like that.

Joe Voorhees [02-20-2004]

To alow our elected officials to disect every word in the constitution and apply what they think it means is nothing less than abuse of power. The powers that be know full and well the intent behind the words chosen in theese documents.Return the power to the people.It is our country let it be free to any american.The laws of our country are not to control our people they are to protect our people from having our rights violated.

I visited this web site to figure out what freedom is, and i realize that America isn't a free a we think. We are the dirtiest country. Anybody will do anything to money, even if means throwing inasanity people in jail. America needs help if they think were free them the should dig deep inside them selfs to find out what were really like. We're free to a lot of countries but if they tried living here i think they might see what i see People who easyly get chaught in the chane of un-born life... More and more people get money and send it on food that is salty and tasty... i bet only 1/5 americans can last 1 week only one green foods or just heathly food america is FAT eveb if nobody wants to admit it!

I think this site should include more information and the document itself. Then people would be able to read it and learn more information about the document itself.

Charlene Bland Sepulveda, Thomas Bland was a relative I just found out also that he signed the declaration of independence [01-04-2004]

You may be interested to know that the Church in Down Hatherley, Glos where Button Gwinnett was born have recently aquired the site of the Rectory used by his father when he was rector of the Church. The discussion being held now are weather to investigate the site or turn it into a car park! I don't think this sort of thing would happen in the USA.
