Print Shop at Independence

Yesterday was very interesting. I got the chance to experience how Ben Franklin printed documents such as his news paper among many other things. I was surprised at how long it actually took to print one thing. This video shows me in a class with two Rangers explaining the printing process from those days. I was even fortunate enough to get my own copy of the Declaration of Independence printed on not only the machine they used but the paper that was used during those times as well. It was truly a magical experience and I look forward to many more.
