We would like to wish you a happy Independence Day from the Footnote Team! We recognize our ancestor’s sacrifice for this country and we are grateful that we have so many of these historic documents that made this day possible. Spend some time looking at some of our historic collections, for instance the American Milestone Documents, Constitutional Convention Records, and Continental Congress Papers—all Free to view. Do you have an ancestor that fought in the Revolutionary War? See if you can find their pension record. In leaving, be sure to check out these spotlights below. One spotlighting the Transcript journals from the Continental Congress and the other highlighting the original image of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Their signatures may be fading but we won’t forget them.
You can easily embed any spotlight on your website.
