John Adams - Declaration of Independence

Another good video to watch - John Adams - Declaration of Independence:

I love this scene. The reaction of the Congress is well-attested. There was no shouting or tossing of hats. They were struck dumb and quite solemn about the seriousness of the step they had taken and its consequences.

the only thing the series lacked would have been a scene set in France of the 18-year-old Marquis d' Lafayette hearing the Declaration read and the transported look on his faith as he resolved to join the lovers of freedom in the new world.

I am so grateful to our Founding Fathers for having the wisdom and strength of character to create this great nation.
