In June 1992, Tom Lingenfelter, a dealer in rare historical documents and artifacts in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, found the truest copy of the 1776 handwritten Declaration of Independence at a flea market. This extraordinary discovery was able to tell a more complete story of how this priceless document came to be.

If we travel back in time to June 7, 1776, we would witness Richard Henry Lee of Virginia introducing a resolution in the Second Continental Congress "that these United States are and of right ought to be Free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is and ought to be totally dissolved." Lee's Resolution was the beginning of the process which would lead to the Declaration of Independence.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal , that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    This has been called "one of the best-known sentences in the English language", [8] containing "the most potent and consequential words in American history". [9] The passage came to represent a moral standard to which the United States should strive. This view was notably promoted by Abraham Lincoln , who considered the Declaration to be the foundation of his political philosophy, and argued that the Declaration is a statement of principles through which the United States Constitution should be interpreted. [10]

    The United States Declaration of Independence , which announced that the thirteen American colonies then at war with Great Britain were no longer a part of the British Empire , exists in a number of drafts, handwritten copies, and published broadsides.

    Many of the words from the Composition Draft were ultimately deleted by congress from the final text of the Declaration. Phrases from the fragment to survive the editing process include "acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation" and "hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends." [2]

    24.5 x 29.5 in. (62 x 75 cm), on rice paper with extension where inserted in American Archives upper right. Folds as issued. Lower left W.J. Stone, SC Washn.

    By the early part of the 19th century, the original engrossed copy of the Declaration of Independence was showing signs of wear. Although we do not have any good descriptions of its condition, it had been rolled, and unrolled numerous times for visiting dignitaries, engravers (such as Benjamin Tyler, who made copies of many political letters and prints which were offered for sale), and others. Most Americans had never seen the important documents, and the generation of the Revolution was passing rapidly by the first quarter of the new century.

    Michael Sparks, a music equipment technician, sold the document Thursday at Raynors'' Historical Collectible Auctions in Burlington, N.C.

    Six bidders contended for the document, most by phone or Internet, when bidding opened at $125,000. The identity of the winner was not disclosed.

    Six bidders contended for the document, most by phone or Internet, when bidding opened at $125,000. The identity of the winner was not disclosed.

    In spite of the outbreak of war in 1775, the legislatures of the American colonies were only gradually persuaded to demand independence; the Declaration was not finally agreed until 4 July 1776. The British government was determined to resist the rebellion but met with military reverses in America and a vociferous, if divided, opposition at home. By the beginning of 1778 the French were also threatening to intervene.

    At this time the opposition demanded an enquiry into the state of the nation and called for papers, to reveal, amongst other things, the ineffectiveness of the Prohibitory Act as a means of restoring America to the king''s ''peace''. These papers, which were laid before the House of Lords on 20 Jan 1778, included this copy of the American Declaration of Independence. The motion for an enquiry was defeated on 2 February. The war was formally ended by the Treaty of Paris, which was signed on 3 September 1783.

    Overview: On June 11, 1776, the Second Continental Congress appointed a committee of five to draft a statement asserting the American colonies' independence from Great Britain. John Adams and the other committee members agreed that Thomas Jefferson should undertake the task. On July 4, after debate and revision, Congress approved the document and soon ordered that the declaration be written large and legibly on parchment for official purposes, and signed by all members of Congress.

    The Declaration of Independence traveled with the young government to Philadelphia, New York, and other temporary capitals. After 1800, it was brought to the newly created seat of government in the District of Columbia. James Madison was president when Secretary of State James Monroe spirited the document across the river to Virginia for safekeeping during the British invasion of the capital in August 1814.
