几乎每个人都知道独立宣言是杰弗逊写的,然而,就像其他人写东西前要打草稿,杰弗逊至少拟了一份草稿。这是当前所知最早的一份独立宣言草稿的模样。在杰弗逊呈交一份干净或清楚的 纸本以作为「原始草稿」基础前,您可以看见杰弗逊疯狂涂改他的第一份草稿。其他来自13个殖民地的代表都决定由杰弗逊负责撰写独立宣言,因为他们都认为他是最好的作家 。您能记得独立宣言中的任何一句话吗?

Almost everyone knows that Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. However, did you know that, like most people who write something, he wrote at least one rough draft? This is an example of what's left of the earliest known draft of the Declaration. You can see that Jefferson heavily edited his first draft before he prepared a clean, or "fair," copy that became the basis of the "original rough draught." The other representatives from the 13 colonies selected Jefferson to write the Declaration because they all agreed he was the best writer. Do you know any of the words of the Declaration of Independence by heart?
