This is a treasuer to behold to be able to realize where the forefathers of this country left their legacy for generations to come. Then technology has advanced the feeling of "Americanism" even further by viewing this document whenever and where ever there is a computer is an amazing thing to behold. Our forefathers would have been proud. I wonder at the thought about having Obama as a President would have brought these men? It is a great country we have! This book shows where our "Manifest Destiny" originates.
