The Declaration of Independence

One of my favorite memories of living in Washington DC was heading down to the National Archives on the 4th of July for a reading of the Declaration of Independence by the Town Crier before the annual 4th of July Parade. My first summer, in 1993, Attorney General Janet Reno led the ceremonies.

The Founding Fathers are depicted in the painting Declaration of Independence by John Trumbull.
