This educational training aid had been used in a history class at a German school in Ludwickshafen am Rhein. It was frequently but carefully handled, and is in excellent condition.
It portrays the meeting of the Continental Congress as they debate and then sign the Declaration of Independence.
The signing occurred primarily on August 2, 1776 at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The 56 delegates to the Second Continental Congress represented the 13 former colonies which had declared themselves the "United States of America," and they endorsed the Declaration of Independence which the Congress had approved on July 4, 1776. The Declaration proclaimed that the former Thirteen Colonies then at war with Great Britain were now a sovereign, independent nation and thus no longer a part of the British Empire.
The poster is 43 in. long and 27 in. wide. It is authentic and it validates the keen interest which Germans have for American history.
