How sad the greatest document in the World is being treated like a piece of dirt. WE THE PEOPLE do not want this Health Bill. Obama should tuck his weasel tail between his legs and go back to the Kenyan hole he crawled out of and take most of the democrats with him.

We learned that the Declaration is kept in Washington, D.C. at the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom.On the back of the Declaration of Idependence says "Original Declaration of Independence dated 4th July 1776 but they dont know if it was just a label or if one of the signers of the Declaration wrote it on there. We also learned that Benjamin Franklin went to the Universities of Edinburgh and Oxford.
Chyenne and Brent [03-17-2010]

This web site gave us very useful information about the Declaration of Independance and the people who were involved with it. For example, I learned things about Thomas Jefferson that I had never known before, like the fact that he had originally gone to school to become a lawyer.

Elijah Harryman, my Great, Great, Great Grandfather fought for this Declaration! On Dec. 26, 1776, under Col. Henry Knox's Artillery regiment Elijah fought for General George Washington. The General’s Army (of 2500) crossed the Delaware and captured Trenton NJ from Hessian mercenaries who were fighting for the British. We as a people must understand what motivated these heroes who sacrificed untold hardship and their lives for their freedom. As Citizens, we must now protect the freedoms these heroes handed down to us; many Citizens currently feel our Government is strangely assuming the role that Great Britain did in 1776!
Allen Harryman [03-16-2010]

Any historical background on the use of the term "Laws..of Nature's God" in our Declaration of Independence. At the time Jefferson used that term was there any distincition between the phrase "Laws of God" and the "Laws of Nature's God"? The phraseolgy seems award to me.

Patrick Joseph Gormally, Born Mayo Ireland 02.02.1942.reside now N.I. [03-09-2010]

My thoughts about the Declaration of Independence is intended to be good but turned out bad because of who runs our world, rights, and most importantly, the people. In Declaration of Independence it says that people have the right to do something if they feel that the government is not doing its job, we have the right to refuse or deny something we feel is not right. but still the government over powers the people.it shouldnt be like that. the people have more power, or we should, but it doesnt work that way anymore.. god information though.

I bookmarked this site some time ago but never signed the guestbook. With the Second Amendment case being argued before the Supreme Court today, I thought I'd return to see if the Declaration has anything to say about bearing arms. I didn't recall that it did, and indeed I didn't find anything addressing that subject. Of course, let's face it, the Declaration rather presupposed the bearing of arms, didn't it?

As Burmese activist for the restoration of freedom and democracy, I am inspired by the American struggle for independence and her founders. I am also inspired by how the founders were looking for inspiration from Greek and Roman notions of freedom.

I never realized that part of the revolt was against England's offer of protection to the Native Americans and established a territory for them. I found it disturbing to learn that the founders had no respect for any rights of natives. I shouldn't be surprised, but that part of the story wasn't in the context of the whole story until I read more here. Thank you for the extensive website and inclusions of writings such as those by Jefferson.

The colonies showed that they were not just going to take anything that England dished out. Since they had no say in Parliament, why should Parliament have any say in their lives. The Colonies where also start to may laws for themselves.

I'm reading John Jakes's Bicentennial and rereading all My America's history I loved so much 55 or so years ago. When I read again of the passion that the colonists felt for our country with so few to fight and with such a shortage of guns and amunition in the beginning. Yet they were willing to defend their countrymen's rights to freedom. The Declaration of Independence means as much today for all of us.

it is evident that the people of the United states have by their ignorance and apathy have allowed this government to create a socialist & anarchist atmosphere and we are in danger of loosing the freedoms which we say we cherish be cause we have voted for a corrupt leadership that is with the bureaucracy is consuming and destroying the constitutional government we once enjoyed and the only way we can get it back is to vote those in office who will not do the will of the people out and put honest people in their place i personally don't know where to start accept by voting and voicing my opinion ..............what do you think

As a Welshman from across the 'big pond', visiting your site for the first time, It gladdened my heart to see the comments especially from the younger people. One quote summed it up perfectly i.e. “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.” Your struggle to free yourselves paved the way for the French Revolution and the subsequent movements for democracy in Europe i.e. the Chartist Movement of 1839, here in Wales. May I suggest especially for the younger readers, Tom Paine's 'Rights of Man' as background reading to the American cause for liberty. Be proud young America, because your country has over the last hundred years or so, has had to clear up the mess(sometimes with little thanks), that the colonial powers of Europe(including Britain) have left in many parts of the world.

my thoughts on this is that it took a lot of courage to write this document and i respect the ones who did,because if it wasnt for them we would be at war and we would not have peace at all and their wouldnt be freedom.

It's astounding what our declaration says. I just read since not having read it in years. Our government needs to live up to this. The government now makes all the decisions for us, we don't get to decide anything. It's a dictatorship now, we are no longer a free independant country.
