This slideshow presentation examines the history of the Declaration of Independence and its seven Virginia signers. How did the Declaration come to be written and what ideas did it express? What other documents and theories influenced Jefferson as he drafted the Declaration? What were the differences between Jefferson’s original manuscript and the one Congress adopted? Who were the seven Virginians who signed it, and what role did they play in the creation of the new nation? And how has the meaning and commemoration of the Declaration evolved since 1776?
*This lecture will take place at Ingleside Vineyards in Westmoreland County. Lunch is available by reservation and is included in the cost of the ticket.
The Menokin Speaker Series is made possible, in part, by the Signer’s Society of Menokin.
