Trumbull's Declaration of Independence is housed in the U.S. Capital Rotunda and depicts the five-man committee presenting the draft of the document to the Congress. For much of his life, the artist was in financial straits. In this instance, selling these "impressions" to Williams likely settled some of those debts. This document is on toned paper with some dampstaining to the lower left corner.
