"We might have been a free and great people together."

 

Too bad the Brits never saw this as 25% of Jefferson's draft was modified or removed from the Declaration of Independence.

I read an article today in the Washington Post about how they used a special light to read words Jefferson blotted out of the manuscript. I believe it is Spectral light, used in forensics.

Ole Jeff changed the word 'Subjects' to 'Citizens' when referring to the residents of the colonies.

You have to register at the WaPo website to view the article, and I won't register there. good read though.
