Signing the Declaration of Independence, John Trumbull

Today’s flashback comes via the Connecticut Historical Society, which served up a wonderful print of the Declaration of Independence, the historic painting by Connecticut’s John Trumbull commemorating the day when the Continental Congress received the Declaration for debate (Congress approved it, if you were wondering). The original is in the Capitol in Washington, D.C.
