The Declaration of Independence

Happy Independence Day! Thanks to all those who work to keep us free.


  1. I shared the Declaration with my student from Romania. The actual document is much longer than I remembered... A great book to read is The Signers: the 56 stories behind the Declaration of Independence. It's a children's nonfiction book which gives basic facts about each of the signers and what price they paid for signing. I highly recommend it.

  2. Thanks for the recommendation, Lynette. It sounds like a fascinating book!
