I found this article interesting. And I do come away from a reading of the Declaration with differing perspectives / understandings, depending on where that period is placed. But I’m also happy to see Wood’s review of the work – it probably needs to be touted as something more than a “period piece” ; -)

Thank you. It is all very interesting and puts a new light on the Declaration. I keep thinking of how interesting her class had to have been, the discovery and the discussions. The book looks interesting. Again..thank you.
