This piece of paper means so much to this country, it is a symbol of our saying, "enough is enough"...200+ years later we are still saying it. You can make change as did our forefathers...not by waging war but by getting out there and VOTEing. Exercise your independence...many have given their lives for it.

I can't help but remember that Teddy Roosevelt or someone back then said "With every 4 years during a Presidential election would could our Country by 1 vote". But it seems that every time a candidate offers something for nothing they get elected. Greed is a horrible thing and takes away a people's intative. We need to elect a person that understands what our forefathers went through to great a great country which is one of a kind. The liberty we have is the best in the worlt and we need to fight for it or lose it

Great website. Deciding to have their own Tea Party, many folks are choosing to vote third party. Some say we are throwing away our vote, but as I read the events that led up to our eventual freedom from England's tyranny, I disagree. We need to get the government back into the hands of the people, and we have to start by getting rid of this two party system!

The cost of freedom is great, and without bravery there can be no freedom. The men who signed this document knew that they might as well have been signing their own death warrant, for signing so bring the untethered wrath of a grteat empire upon them. These men had to flees their homes and families. Some were excuted,some imprisoned, and many lost their families and entire fortunes.

When was the last time you took 5 minutes to read OUR “Declaration of Independence”? Some things are timeless! History repeats itself! This should be taught in our schools and in DC! Let Freedom Ring! John Cooper Sr. Sign your name and pass in on!

Just think, if the important men in our history would of never written the Declaration of Independence, you and me would not be free today. The men that started the Revolutionary War, did not know how important it really was to our history. So even though war seemed bad at the time, it was what made us all free today!

Does "All men" include suspected Arab terrorists or enemy combatants? Are rich and famous people, certain protected classes, or our elected leaders "more equal" than the rest of us? We spend lots of money to preserve and protect the original, and express reverence and awe of it in a vain attempt to demonstrate how important it is to us, while our actions indicate that we really either do not know or do not care what it says.

God bless America. He's allowed us to live in this country; let us not disobey Him, but return to the basics of Christian principles our country was obviously founded upon by the Founding Fathers. We're independent because He's allowed it! Thanks be to God for this country: the land of the free and the home of the brave!
HB, high school [09-05-2008]

The united states of America clearly means just that, the states are united but not the people. I watched both debates and saw Christians behaving badly, insulting one another to prove a point and to feel good about themselves. Glory goes to God alone and doing his will would unite us all and correct every know and unknown problem we have. History in the making repeat, the Bible in one hand and stones in the other. This is 2008, what a shame.

An excellent compilation and source of information. Question for anyone: How many copies of the Declaration of Independence were made? Is it safe to assume that the original was sent to King George and Parliament? If so, is the document in D.C. a copy made "for our records"? Always been a history buff--maybe that's because it has a tendency to repeat itself and if we have a solid historical foundation of learning, keep abreast of current events, and, yes, even possess a working knowledge of biblical eschatology, we just might have some insight into our future. Plan to "visit" this site often a glean as much information as possible. Sincerely, R. George Snyder

I classify myself as an anarchist because I think we should start over with the Declaration and the Constitution. I'm sickened by the corporate ownership of the US. Did you know we just sold the Chrysler Bldg. in NYC to people from Abu Dhabi. Arabs now own one of the architectural wonders of the world. Is Mt. Rushmore for sale next, how about Ellis Island. It's empty and the buildings are falling down anyway. Why not buy the land and build a falafal stand. Jack

History never really 'thrilled' me. I mean, I've always been one to live for the moment and look to the future. Why look at the past? It’s just a boring class to snooze through in high school. But, in the early 1990s, I found myself in D.C.—eek! The very heart of history!— waiting for my boyfriend to take a break from his studies at a nearby campus. I had been poking around some second-hand shops and I was getting pretty bored. I meandered past the National Archives, read something about the Declaration being inside, so I decided to take a peek at this document that was supposed to be such a big deal—and perhaps by doing so—find some fodder for dinner conversation to impress my history-buff boyfriend. Yet, when I peered through the heavy glass enclosure at the declaration—I was overcome, not with just the power and the immense value it held for us today—but for anyone throughout the past couple of centuries who may have come into contact with it. I realized that the document’s words were blurring because I had started to cry without being aware, and I quickly wiped my coat sleeve across my eyes in embarrassment. I walked out of the building feeling so small and insignificant. To have coined those words, to have signed that 'death sentence,' to have been a family member or friend of those that committed their names to that declaration... so powerful, yet so simple. History—perhaps only for an afternoon—became tangibly alive for me. I looked at the surrounding structures differently. I smiled at the tourists who passed with tired children and crumpled maps. The history of us is here—was there—is always with us. Sometimes we just need a nudge to peer into its direction. Please take the time to visit this particular piece of history. I have climbed the 387 steps up a tower to the top of Notre Dame, watched the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, and I watched a busy New York City from the top of a once-majestic World Trade Center. All of those gigantic experiences have affected me more deeply, more emotionally, more spiritually than I could ever have expected, and yet, this simple, crumbling yellow document—inked by men so long ago—touched me differently. I’ll never be able to recite it. I’ll never be able to touch it. I’ll never create anything so valuable. But, I can say that it thrilled me. That history actually thrilled me! I can say that the The Declaration of Independence was the most beautiful piece of paper I have ever seen.
