Please click here for a press release covering the announcement of the "The Sussex Declaration."

The Declaration Resources Project was established by Harvard professor and political philosopher Danielle Allen in 2015. In the course of researching, writing, and discussing her book, Our Declaration, Professor Allen realized that we do not know everything there is to know about this important document in the history of American politics, culture, and identity. Previously unknown copies of the Declaration surface every few years, and innovations in technology and archival practice allow us to approach documents in new and exciting ways. There are still questions to be answered about the text itself, the signers, and even how news of the Declaration spread around the new United States and eventually the world.
