Declaration of Independence: The Evolution of the Text (rev. ed.)
Julian P. Boyd (au); Gerard W. Gawalt (ed); Archibold MacLeish (fr)
This new ed. of Boyd’s authoritative study of the drafting of the Declaration of Independence (DoI) includes the fragment of a draft of the DoI that was unknown in 1943, when this text was first published. Discovered in 1947 by Boyd, Jefferson’s composition fragment was first exhibited to the public in 1995, and it is here made available in a color reproduction for the first time. Library of Congress historical specialist Gerard Gawalt writes about the discovery of the fragment that preceded the rough draft penned by Jefferson for submission to Congress and about how it sheds new light on the drafting of the DoI. Also includes a moving wartime foreword by Archibald MacLeish in 1943, and Boyd’s expert insights into the writing and editing of the text. Illustrations.
