I thought that this site was absolutely fantastic! I also had a fascination with The Declaration of Independence and this fascination grew after I watched the movie National Treasure. My favorite sentence in the Declaration of Independence is: 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. It gives me goosebumps everytime that I read it. I just can't beleive that someone wrote this.
Christine Wei, Vancouver, Canada [12-29-2006]
what a timeless document. our fore-fathers gave us so much
Craig Hakes, Jackson,MN 56143 [12-29-2006]
Question, for the final signature copy of the Declaration, who was the scrib. In other words, after the final text was agreed to, who penned the words so that the document could be signed. I doubt that Jefferson would have done this, more likely a congressional scribe.
Wall it in to keep terrorists out. Just like Independence Hall. Armed guards would help. Security uppermost. Screening when you walk (barefoot, of course) within 10 feet of building. No liquids, natch. Otherwise enjoy our freedoms. Uncle Sam

Hmm, if the Americans would only look at history as more than a class to sleep in they might learn a thing or 2 about their current events and major mistakes they are making...

It is a shame that some of the American people can act so fanaticaly about protecting their country when they fail to read the words of the founding fathers, or understand that which America was founded for and to be.
Justin Boyett, Seattle, WA [12-29-2006]
My Collier's Encyclopedia says "certain inalienable rights" whereas your prints of the declaration use the spelling "unalienable". I believe your web site has incorrect speeling.

i beleive that Sam Adams should have a monument. Eventhough he said that there would be no monuments of himself because he is disliked, he had a lot to do with the freedom of our history and i can't understand why he doesn't have a momument. We have momuments of pretty much everyone BUT him. This makes me want to build one for him. . . but sadly i can not.

This is an awesome site. Breaking away from Great Britain was an absolute must. We as a nation MUST get back to the printed words of this great document as we have strayed from them and have in large part become another GB, taxation once again is out of control. We have forsaken our first Love, and to whom this great nation was formed, God. I pray for America daily, do you?
you need more info on web site
If only these were here a long time ago when African Americans weren't free this would have stopped the civil war!

What an honor at my age of 35 to actually re-read the Declaration of Independence and to hold it's meaning close to my heart. I had studied the declaration while still in school, but, somehow, after so many upheavals and changes in the United States Government, the meaning is more poignant.

It is interesting that even though the Declaration says "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," slavery would still be legal for another fifty-seven years. If they believed all men were created equal, how could they allow blacks to be lacking in the most basic right of freedom?

I'm thirty eight and I just read the declaration for the first time. We certainly do not talk like that anymore. Not sure if that's good or bad. Maybe progress or maybe decay... Anyway, I'm glad/proud to be an american. I think we should make immigrants read it before we open the door.

I'm 61, and I don't remember ever reading the entire document before. Certainly all children in high school should. I couldn't help but compre my list of grievances with our current King George with those listed by our forefathers. The Declaration should be printed once a year on the front page of every newspaper. thanks

J. Rice, Washington, DC Age: 13 [11-27-2006]
I am an american vet, and I love everything about living here and having the freedom to make choices, but as a Black American I still have a heavy heart about the racism that is still here. Our fore fathers when they wrote this magnificient document they were thinking about everyone regardless of race, creed, or color, or religion. But I wouldn't have it any other way because, when I turn on the news and hear about civilian women and children being killed for no reason except being who they are and where they are from. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my views. William from VA.

keep up the good work
jm0645832 Veronica Kakachyan The founding fathers intent was to create a government that was for the people, and established by the people. The new government would consist of elected officials, and like the monarchs of Europe. The founding fathers also intended to ensure civil liberties and, inalienable rights for all citizens. The founding fathers wanted to give the people a chance to speak up, a chance to decide what they think is right for our government. The declaration of independence was a way for the people to get involved. The constitution’s basis lead to a detailed document explaining the rights of the citizens, purpose of the government and, how each branch would be responsible for the other, checks and balances. Our founding fathers goal was to avoid tyranny or in other words a dictatorship. Checks and balances was a way to keep our government equal, balanced. The declaration of independence was a big step. In 1770s Great Britain felt the urge to over power united states; tell the people what to do, and so on, a stop had to be made. The declaration of independence made it clear the people will decide. The sole purpose of this document was to establish a government that was fair and equitable for all and, one where each citizen could live without fear because they dares to be different. Freedom of speech, freedom of religion. The freedom to be you. Since the signing of the declaration of independence people have chosen whether to be Christian, Catholic, Jewish, it’s your life why not chose how to live it. Since the establishment of the constitution many other countries have tried to establish what we have. God Bless America.

it didnt have much over the revoltionary war, so it wasnt helping me much on my social studies paper.
I'm a bibliophile, history is my passion and I found this extremely interesting. I notice with regret, after reading their comments, that the younger generation are sadly lacking in education judging by their spelling.

It is great to be able to access so much information so easily via our "technologies-of-today". For us that have "been there-done that" it is really good to see what we may have forgotten, mis-quoted, or otherwise grown to take for granted since we proposedly "learned" it a while back!
