Finals week is fast approaching. For those so engaged, a helpful tip is to browse through the whole exam before actually starting it. It helps get the mind in gear and actually ends up saving some time.

We're getting to that time of year... buckle down and get the work done well before any due dates; try not to let the first draft and the final draft be the same draft. Same goes with presentations. Get it done and practice (not memorize) but get comfortable speaking aloud (an audience, even a virtual one, can be more nerve wracking that you may expect). Being prepared calms the jitters.

Research Guides: Declaration of Independence: Primary Documents in American History: Introduction

The Department wishes our students, alums, and friends a safe and happy 4th of July holiday. https://guides.loc.gov/declaration-of-independence

guides.loc.gov The Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776. This guide provides access to digital materials at the Library of Congress, links to related external websites, and a print bibliography.

07/03/2020

Those following along will remember that yesterday, the Second Continental Congress agreed to meet today, 3 July 1776, to resume discussion of a declaration of independence. The day opened with the delegates voting to send 3 additional battalions from Pennsylvania to help New Jersey, and they agreed on the compensation for shipwrights ($34.66/month; plus "Each man to be allowed, one ration and a half, and one half pint of rum, a day." After that, they moved to take up the Declaration, and, once again, Virginia's Benjamin Harrison moved to postpone until tomorrow. The assembly agreed to adjourn and reassemble at 9 am tomorrow to take up the Declaration.
