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.
In 1815, Thomas Jefferson praised James Madison (born #onthisday) and his record of the debates at the Constitutional Convention: "the whole of every thing said and done there was taken down by mr Madison, with a labor and exactness beyond comprehension." t.co/40fDmTqDij
Happy Birthday, James Madison! The "Father of the Constitution" didn't sign the #DeclarationofIndependence (he was part of the VA legislature in 1776), but in his later years, plenty of people wrote to him, asking for his account of the events surrounding the Declaration 🤦♂️ t.co/58AC19BW2A
