It's the season to celebrate the freedoms that we cherish in the United States of America. The Declaration that Jefferson wrote (with the assistance of other founders) was a genius breakup letter with King George III of England. It's also the main character in Jerry Bruckheimer's National Treasure, a movie in which Benjamin Gates, played by Nicolas Cage, is compelled to borrow the Declaration of Independence to protect it from people who will do harm to it.
Now, with the anniversary of its signing, we ponder over the ongoing preservation efforts for this parchment and the famous signatures of men who committed treason in its signing. They just don't make 'em like they used to.
It's not the law of the land, but this is our founding document - the item that spurred on a national battle cry to continues to strengthen our country today.
From the National Archives:
The Declaration of Independence is on permanent display inside a special encasement at the National Archives Museum.
