The 1776 Broadside Copy of the Declaration of Independence
In July 1776, Robert Luist Fowle printed broadside (long, single-sheet) copies of the Declaration of Independence, which had just been adopted by the Continental Congress. As a loyalist, Fowle’s enduring allegiance to the British Crown made him a minority in the rapidly radicalizing colonies. Yet despite his personal politics, Fowle faithfully reproduced the document for the public to read and learn of the shocking new developments. Our #1776 is a broadside copy of the Declaration of Independence, printed in Exeter, New Hampshire by Fowle. Investors who are registered on Rally will be able to participate on May 7th and have a chance to own equity in a piece of priceless American history!

Our #1776 is 1 of an estimated 20 broadside copies of the Declaration of Independence currently held in private hands. Before being displayed at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia from 2009-2012, #1776 was passed down through the family of Charles Toppan, an engraver and founder of the American Bank Note company.
