Celebrate Independence Day at the New York Public Library, which will exhibit a rare historic copy of the Declaration of Independence, handwritten by founding father Thomas Jefferson. Visit the NYPL’s Schwarzman Building to see Jefferson’s original text, which was completed on July 1, 1776. This copy includes sections that were later removed before its July 4 ratification.
