The Declaration of Independence Copy Found in an Attic

You never know what you might find in your attic.

An old scrapbook? Sun-bleached photographs? A moth-eaten high school varsity jacket?

It may sound like a plot line from a “National Treasure” movie, but that startling discovery actually occurred in Exeter, New Hampshire, in 1985.

Read about it in this month’s edition of The Throwback, my monthly history e-newsletter. Also take a tour of the residences of the Founding Fathers, sign up for History Camp America, and find out which presidents historians ranked the best and worst in American history.
