“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

On this day, 239 years ago, the Declaration of Independence was signed. Have you ever read the Declaration of Independence? In its entirety? I thought it would be a bit much to copy the whole thing here, but the National Archives has the full text on its website. I encourage you to read it. And, after you do, have a safe and happy Independence Day!
