THE INSPIRATION OF
THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

THE spirit of independence created out of the North American wilderness one of the most powerful nations the world has ever seen. It is the greatest heritage left us by those who won their country's freedom through bitter struggle.

No other one thing can instill this spirit into future generations of Americans so well as a study of the Declaration of Independence. The demand for justice for all and defiance of tyranny which it expresses so simply and forcefully are among the noblest emotions of the soul.

A bronze plaque of the Declaration of Independence is a fitting addition to schools, colleges, universities and public buildings.

The Gorham Company's fine bronze plaque of the Declaration of Independence measures 33 inches by 40½ inches overall. The weight of the plaque, boxed for shipment, is 150 pounds. The presentation plate will be engraved by us if desired. All necessary fastenings for placing on any wall are enclosed with the shipment.
