all of the dumb kids who write comments like "this site stinks" ..... just ignore them. this is a good site.
neat site. just a suggeston, a lot of students (7th graders) from many schools go to this site because this year in history class, we have to do a research project from the revolutionary war time/era. one of the options we can do our report on is the declaration of independence. to make this site a bit more fun for kids, you could create a game... say about the declaration or something or other similar. or you could have a game where you have multiple choice questions about george washington or other important men in that era. anyways, very helpful site. thanks a lot.

I think you should say more about what the signers did during the time they were signing the declaration.
Bob Quincy [04-28-2006]
It is interesting for me to read this information. I am doing research for a college paper on the Declaration of Independence and found information on 2 of my ancenstors who signed it: William Floyd and Benjamin Rush (ancestry researched in Washington DC by my grandmother prior to her passing).

I am looking for some information concerning exact copies of the Declaration of Independence. I have an "exact" copy of the Stone copy that was authorized by Congress to be made in 1823. It is very, very old, quiet possibly from the early 1800s' The only difference is that the copy that I have is smaller than the others that were ordered to be made. The reason I feel so strongly that it is from the early 1800s' is because it was passed down to the first Grandson in a certain family. My friend received it from his Grandfather and his Grandfather received it from his Grandfather, four generations. I would appreciate any info regarding copies that were of a smaller size than the original.

I've heard that 2 indentured servents signed the declaration of independance. Do you know the names of those people?
this document is of historic significance to all peoples as it is the words of a nation which sprang from english roots as well as scottish ones i am convinced that had the parliment of england had been the same as that of the commonwealth period in the uk some form of accomadation would have been reached we are after all related in english common law as well prehaps we have after 200 years plus learned more about the ties that bind us than the atlantic that seperates us

"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."

JOSHUA ANSTETT, importance of this document [03-22-2006]
why did british take over? they had no rights to take over. they only took over because they had more soilders. but Americans were there longer. it was not fair. the brithish just kicked the americans off there own land. that is not just. they should have never thought they were bigger and better. they should have said they have been here longer lets go somewere else to settle

I think that the declaration of independence was a good thing for everybody because we aren't British Americans anymore but we are plan americans. I also say after the war ended we had people who still wanted freedom because whites thought they were better than blacks. I live in a generation where we don't have to go though that so i am thankful. Thank you God,Amen.

cool site with lots of info!
While growing up in the United States, studying government in 8th grade and 10th grade, I marveled at the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. I understood the essence of each document, but I could not appreciate or comprehend each word, sentence, and paragraph. Now I revisit these documents and enjoy the beauty of their words. The thoughts are so powerful. I will eternally continue to learn. So much is professed in so little text. The authors are geniuses. Can these saints such as Thomas Jefferson or Abraham Lincoln ever grasp the power of their words and thoughts, and how they are eternally living? I can only kneel on my knees, have them in my prayers everyday, and thank God for showing us the way. It is my privilege to grow up, live, and be a citizen of the United States. My Dad came to Oregon in 1967 (he saw RFK in a parade, and, within a few days, he was assassinated. My Dad and his friends stayed up the entire night, watched TV, and were crying). The rest of us came to 1968. Often, I forget how good I have it in the United States. Often, I take things for granted. Often, I take my parents for granted. When I come back to the Roots of America and the Roots of my Parents, it puts everything in perspective. It is our privilege to be U.S. Citizens and we are always proud of it. Agreeing to disagree freely is one of the Constitution’s strongest anchors. Thank you for providing me the opportunity for my say. Respectfully, Rama Nerella

Hi. I would like to talk about Free Speech. I think free speech is limited heavily in our time and age. Example: A radio anouncer in Melborn, Australia menchend a sex offenders name while talking about the case. He spent 12 days in jail. He can't find work now, and his life is trashed. Why? Because he used Free Speech. Tho the goverment can't take Free Speech away, they can make it a nightmare. Do you think you have the right to Free Speech? Have you ever been scared to say what was on your mind? Yes, you proboly have, because of the penilties that come with Free Speech. Can you walk into airport and say 'Bomb' and not be searched? No! The goverment takes away Free Speech to help the greater good, but do you want the greater good if this is what it causes? E-mail me your thoughts...

I was looking for a copy of the original document and thank you for showing one. I am in a class that is having us learn how to use search engines and our assignment to start is a scavenger hunt. I like the information that told about the back, since I did like the movie "National Treasure" and the question had crossed my mine.
