A rare document from our country's history is going on display at Yorktown Victory Center in Virginia next month.
A broadside printing of the Declaration of Independence made in July 1776 was purchased with money provided by a private foundation of the center.
The Victory Center celebrates the nation's colonial past and the American Revolution. The printing that will be on display starting on Oct. 1 measures 17 by 11 7/8 inches. It was printed in Boston soon after the declaration was adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776.
Center officials say it will be a cornerstone of a new 80,000 square foot building that is being planned to replace the existing center.
