An original copy
Harvard’s Houghton Library contains one of only a few surviving Dunlap broadside copies of the original Declaration of Independence.
On July 6, 1776, President of the Continental Congress John Hancock sent one of the just-printed copies of the Declaration of Independence to General Artemas Ward, commander of the Continental Army troops in Boston. Hancock’s letter came to Houghton as part of John Hubbard Collection of signers of the Declaration of Independence.

At the American Repertory Theater, high school students performed “Proclamation 7: Freedom Acts,” a play written by and starring them, with inspiration from the Declaration of Independence.
