References to God in the Declaration of Independence

Me (Frank DeFreitas) with my re-creation of the Declaration of Independence.

 I have re-created the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America highlighting its references to God. It is a combination of multiple document images, including the 1776 original held in the National Archives in Washington, D.C., and the famous (and familiar) William Stone engraving from 1823.

I have documented the entire process in photos with examplations at my Wonders of the Bible web site.

This page also contains a podcast which explains the entire process via audio.

This edition was done to commemorate the upcoming semiquincentennial celebration in the year 2026.
