Declaration - Lead Story in the Pennsylvania Packet

Image of the Declaration of Independence as it originally appeared in the Pennsylvania Packet in its issue of Monday, July 8, 1776.

This facsimile shows us a section of the Packet which was reprinted 100 years later (to celebrate the Declaration's centennial).  J.V. Vondersmith, of Philadelphia, made the reprint (in 1876).
