Did you know the Musselman Library owns an original copy of the Declaration of Independence? Written in German and printed in Philadelphia on July 6, 1776, the document serves as compelling evidence of the remarkable diversity of America, even at its founding: German-speaking Pennsylvanians were as eager as other colonists to read for themselves the decision for independence.
