The Dunlap Broadside of the Declaration of Independence
This is one of the copies produced by John Dunlap, the official printer of the Continental Congress, and the first version of the Declaration to be printed and distributed. It was inserted into the “rough journal” of the Continental Congress within the July 4 entry.
The handwritten version of the Declaration (aka the “Engrossed” version), later signed by members of the Continental Congress, is on permanent display in the National Archives Building in Washington, DC, in the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom.  Starting at 10am today, you can hear it read — four of the readers are descendants of the original signers. 

Ever been to the National Archives to see the Declaration of Independence in person?  Ever heard it read?
