Not Entirely Wordless Wednesday: Fourth of July

(photo from The Union, which also has a transcript of the Declaration at the link)

Just imagine a group of men in a stifling, sweltering room writing this document out, piece by piece, draft by draft, until they felt it was perfect, and how the King had to feel looking at this document and reading it line by line.

"We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States."
