A Birthday in the timeline of the Declaration

June 28, 1776: A fair copy of the committee draft of the Declaration of Independence is read in Congress.

It would have been better if Congress left it alone, but of course they bickered and revised.

But it is still one of the most elegant documents ever produced by Man.

Have you read it recently?

Here's a rough draft, also a link to the revisions made in Congress, and of course the final draft.
