Celebrate the 240th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence with a new feature from Missouri Press and The Missouri Bar.

On June 11, 1776, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and a few others were appointed to a committee to draft a declaration of independence from England. The Continental Congress officially adopted their Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia on July 4.

Take advantage of your schools’ final weeks in session by publishing the feature in May in celebration of Law Day, or use it any time leading up to Independence Day in July.

To access the half-page feature, visit mo-nie.com and use download code: declaration.
