Reading Declaration Throughout the Colonies
Reproduced from an Old English Print
When the Congress, after three days' debate, decided upon the Declaration of Independence, it was at once ordered printed, and copies sent
broadcast over the land, to be read to the people at large and at the head
of the army. These copies were read everywhere, from pulpit and platform, in every place where there was a gathering of people, some of the
readers touring the country on horseback.
