Declaration of Independence Text
July 4, 2010 by USA Post
The Library of Congress has shown for the first time last Friday that Thomas Jefferson “misspoke” when he was drafting the Declaration of Independence of monarchical rule in England.
Preservation of scientists working for the Library of Congress has discovered that in earlier versions of the Declaration, Thomas Jefferson used the word “subjects” to refer to the American people.
To the credit of Jefferson, he recovered quickly from the pole, crossed out the word humiliation and replace by the more politically correct “citizens”, which he used extensively in the final draft of the Declaration.
Just a little info for the Independence Day this year more meaningful and memorable.
Happy 4th of July!
