Thomas Jefferson’s Writing Desk: What an Artifact Can Tell Us About the Declaration of Independence

With the Declaration of Independence, the 13 colonies in America declared their independence from Great Britain. Virginian Thomas Jefferson, later the third president of the United States, was chosen to write it. But did he write every word? Did anyone help him? What are the differences between his first draft and the document signed by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776? Readers will discover the answers to these questions and find out more about the desk Jefferson designed and at which he wrote this important document.

School Library Journal - Suzanne Costner, Fairview Elementary School, Maryville, TN

"This series offers a unique way to approach historical events that will appeal to history buffs. Things as different as a brass inkstand and a lowly stump serve as reminders of major events when their stories are told. . . .Each title gives the background of the individuals involved and the events, as well as describing the part each object played. Sidebars address related topics such as the way female, Indigenous, and Black persons were affected by events." - School Library Journal
