Happy Independence Day! Reading of the Declaration of Independence (from the “John Adams” series) – Video

Happy Birthday America!

Here is powerful video from the exceptional John Adams series, in which John Adams makes his impassioned plea for freedom before the Continental Congress in 1776. After the brief speech, there is the reading of the Declaration of Independence the Congress passed, which we celebrate today! The words are amazingly profound and powerful, and provide a clarion call we need to return to as Americans today. Happy Independence Day!

NOTE: The video does not contain the reading of the entire Declaration. Here is the text of the entire document.
