The final episode of Liberty's Kids, number 40, We The People. We have posted the entire series on here now along with a large number of history books, stories, pictures and artwork. Though this is the end of the series for Liberty's Kids here, it is not the end of our Liberty Education Series by any means and we want to thank everyone for the continued and outstanding support you have shown us on these posts.
Thomas Jefferson" target="_blank">Declaration of Independence in Draft - Thomas Jefferson from Chuck Thompson
As part of our farewell to Liberty's Kids for now, we have created this very special and very rare view of the Declaration of Independence. The first 4 pages are in draft mode as written by Thomas Jefferson. This version was not destroyed but instead preserved. The 5th page is the final document with all the signatures. We just published this for the first time.
From the mini series, John Adams. This is a great cut and fits perfectly here. It gives a really good idea of just how difficult it was for our forefathers to make the decisions they did.
So our forefathers moved on to create a more perfect union. Now begins the Federalist papers in that march.
