Last year, I posted the Declaration of Independence in its entirety. This year, I give you “The Signing” from one of my favorite movies of all time, 1776. No, the Founding Fathers did not sing and dance their way through the Revolution, but there are still enough facts in this play/movie that it cannot be called “mindless entertainment.”
This scene gives me chills each and every time I see it. If you ever get a chance to watch this movie, I cannot recommend it highly enough. It’s on TCM this evening at 5 Eastern time. Enjoy!
