In 1926 a grateful Polish nation sent a very special birthday card to the United States in honor of the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Five and a half million Poles, or nearly one-sixth of the population of the country, signed the declaration. Signers included government officials, leaders of many prominent institutions, and millions of school children. Even better, the (U.S.) Library of Congress has digitized the entire collection, 111 volumes containing 33,000 pages, and is now available publicly online. The information is just too cool not to share in time for the July 4th American Independence Day. Thank you to my friend Sue for sharing this with me! Click here for more details.
