#Meme – Things I Find While Looking Up Other Things — #Declaration, #Independence, #History, #Picture

IMG_0341Wordless Wednesday — Enjoy this document, that  I found at the Smithsonian. I do not think it dates back to the 1776 era, but it looks like late 19th century or early 20th century ephemera. It is beautiful. One question, though, “Why does John Hancock get billing on par with Washington and Jefferson?” The 13 original colonies are also pictured … just a beautiful replica of the U.S.  Declaration of Independence !
