As someone who knows how important these documents are to America, Stephen can't bring himself to destroy them. Instead, he puts together sacks from fabric to haul the documents out. With the help of normal American citizens, Stephen piles the sacks into carts and they're taken to safety. Thanks to Stephen Pleasonton, we can visit the original Declaration of Independence to this day.
RESCUING THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE is perfect for those children who are interested in history, especially American. Before reading this, I didn't know who Stephen Pleasonton was, but now I realize if it wasn't for him, so much history would have been lost that day. The words that built America would be a pile of ash.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of American History and important documents like the Declaration of Independence.
