Revolutionary Reading

on July 3, 2014

The 4th of July is more than hot dogs, fireworks and parades…it’s the anniversary (238th this year) of the day the United States Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Continental Congress.

To read the text of the Declaration or to see an image of the original document, visit the National Archives website here.

To read more about the Continental Congress, visit the US Department of State’s Office of the Historian.

To see original documents from the Continental Congress, including extracts of the journals of Congress, resolutions, proclamations, committee reports, treaties, and early printed versions of the United States Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, visit the Library of Congress Continental Congress Collection.
