Declaration of Independence: Bart’s Daydream of Philadelphia


Chapter 6: Four days in Philadelphia. The
first Continental Congress faced the difficult job: Could the delegates agree on recommendations
that all Americans could support? We hold these truths to be self-evident …
We hold these truths to be self-evident; we hold these truths to be self-evident …
… that all men are created equal … … that all men are created equal …
… that from that equal creation, they derive rights inherent and inalienable …
Hey, look everybody! It’s snowing! In the middle of July?
It’s a miracle! Fellows! I’ve invented something fun! The
sled! [Hearty laughter].
Hey, look everybody! John Hancock’s writing his name in the snow!

  • i have never realized that this scene confuse the first continental congress with the declaration of independence.
    In the beginning Bart says: Four days in Philadelphia, First continental Congress faced the difficult job… First continental congress was in September 1774.
    Then a delegate argues: In the middle of July?? making reference to July 4, 1776, the declaration of independence.
    In any case the title is wrong.

  • I Already wrote my Very own Declaration of Independence instead of saying all men are created equail, it said all Humans are Created equail under GOD.
