Excerpt from The Declaration of Independence: Illustrated Story of Its Adoption, With the Biographies and Portraits of the Signers and of the Secretary of the Congress This volume was prepared primarily as an aid to those in charge of the exhibit of the Department of State at Expositions in explaining that part of the exhibit relating to the Declaration of Independence. The panel of the exhibit devoted to this interesting document contains a likeness of Jefferson, who wrote the immortal document, a picture of the house in which he wrote it, the desk on which he wrote it, a picture of Independence Hall in which it was debated and adopted, portraits of the committee charged with preparing the draft, and portraits of all the signers. All the illustrations in the panel are given in this book, with some additional ones, including a facsimile of the broadside copy signed by John Hancock, President of the Congress, for and on behalf of the members of the Congress, attested by Charles Thomson, Secretary, and a portrait and biographical sketch of the latter. The series of portraits of the signers is complete and their artistic excellence will be recognized. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
