The Declaration of Independence is coming to the Minnesota History Center May 6-18 for a free public exhibit.
As part of the Office of Secretary of State’s 150th anniversary we are bringing a rare, original printing of the Declaration of Independence to the Minnesota History Center, May 6-18.
This copy, known as a “Dunlap Broadside,” is one of the 25 remaining originals printed the night of July 4, 1776, by Philadelphia printer John Dunlap. It is the only copy that travels for exhibition.
With generous financial support from Dolan Media Company, we are able to bring this copy of the Declaration to Minnesota for a free public exhibit. It will be on display with two handwritten copies of the original Minnesota State Constitution.
Words do matter. Come see for yourself. Below is the exhibit schedule:
