Note: The following text is a transcription of the Stone Engraving of the parchment Declaration of Independence the document on display in the Rotunda at the National Archives Museum. The spelling and punctuation reflects the original. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. 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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

But it was after his election as the first president of the United States of America, that Washington really helped pave the way for our country. During his presidency, Washington helped set the precedent for every president following him in numerous ways. Benjamin Franklin accomplished massive amounts of amazing feats in his long life.
At the time he was selected to write the Declaration, Jefferson was living at the corner of Seventh and Market Streets in Philadelphia. His lodgings were in a three story house owned by a bricklayer named Graff. Few houses had been built in the vicinity, offering Jefferson "a freely circulating air.
