WJLA Washington DC reports on a new exhibit at the Library of Congress that utilizes high tech exhibits to show the specific words and phrases that formed the basis of the American republic.
The exhibit allows visitors to see how the documents evolved. The Declaration of Independence, for instance, initially read "We hold these truths to be sacred and undeniable, that all men are created equal," but of course was revised by Ben Franklin to the less religious sounding "self-evident."
