Publisher Description

In less than 60 minutes of listening to this audiobook, you will have heard the original 1776 United States Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson's account of the Declaration, and much more.

The listener should be aware of what this audiobook is not about: it is not an academic work, nor intended for professors, nor a complete long study of the subject. The audiobook is intended for students, teachers, parents, and interested parties. If this one-hour audiobook interests you as it has others, this will provide a gateway to longer works on this subject and related ones if you are so interested. Otherwise, this has been quite enough information for most listeners, who report relistening to it several times. This audiobook was a live lecture and has all the immediacy of one, complete with paper shuffles and background noise!

To improve your understanding of this historic document, we have included original readings and commentary related to this subject, such as the Virginia Declaration of Rights, drafted a few months before the Declaration of Independence.

This additional information will furnish you with original source material, giving you a fuller understanding of the context and events surrounding the Declaration of Independence. These are the subjects covered:

Jefferson's account of the Declaration of Independence
A brief history of the Declaration
Drafting the documents
Reading of the Virginia Declaration of Rights: May, 1776
George Mason (1725-92): author of the Virginia Declaration

The Declaration Of Independence

Very informative and engaging. Glad this historical document is available for appreciation via audiobook style.

Irritating

Commentary aside, the actual recitation of the declaration is extremely poor quiality. Some added words, some changed words, some misspoken. It would appear that the speaker did not have the respect for the document that would be helpful. Granted, the writing is in old(er) english than what is common today, and I was looking for an audiobook to memorize the declaration. However, I would not recommend this.
