Here’s an interesting read about the printing of the Declaration of Independence —
“Growing up, I believed the Declaration of Independence to be a singular, definitive document, created and signed on July 4, 1776, which was destined to go down as one of the most important pieces of history known to mankind. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Although there is a version of the Declaration of Independence signed on July 4, 1776, with copies printed and distributed, there is a much more complicated history.”
