The Emancipation Declaration

| Learning | March 11, 2015

(I’m sitting in social studies next to a group of friends. I’m a big history nerd when it comes to the American War of Independence, and I’m joking around by quizzing my friends on the signers of the Declaration of Independence. I can list all their names in two minutes.)

Me: *to Student #1* “How many signers can you name?”

Student #1: “Uh, George Washington?”

Me: “Nope. Most people can only remember a couple names from the war, but he wasn’t even in Philadelphia at the time.” *to Student #2* “Can you name any?”

Student #2: “Abraham Lincoln!”
