About the Project
The mission of the Declaration Resources Project is to create innovative scholarly resources to support teaching and learning about, and ongoing engagement with, the Declaration of Independence. Our goal is to encourage and equip individuals to engage with the text and context of the Declaration in new ways.
"I know your great Motive in coming hither was the Hope of being instrumental in a Reconciliation; and I believe when you find that impossible on any Terms given you to propose, you will relinquish so odious a Command..." - Ben Franklin to Admiral Howe #onthisday in 1776 t.co/RIhtRCBprW
