Declaration of Independence: The Stone Copy

decoration28 May 2011|05 Sept. 2011

It is this engraving, two hundred copies of which were distributed to surviving signers, government officials, and others, which provided the image of the Declaration of Independence that has been accepted into the popular consciousness. Today there are only 31 surviving copies of the Stone facsimile. The Stone facsimile is on view near American artist Gilbert Stuart's portraits of Declaration of Independence signers John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.
