What you might not know about the Declaration of Independence | Kenneth C. Davis

Sunday, 4 July

In June 1776, a little over a year after the start of the American Revolutionary War, the US Continental Congress huddled together in a hot room in Philadelphia to talk independence. Historian Kenneth C. Davis dives into some of the lesser known facts about the process of writing the Declaration of Independence and questions one very controversial omission. (Directed by Karrot Animation, narrated by Kenneth C. Davis)
