Inscribed the Declaration of Independence

Timothy_Matlack_in_American_Scribe.png

"In July 4, 1776 the Declaration of Independence was approved by the majority of colonies and on July 19 the Continental Congress ordered the Declaration to be "fairly engrossed on parchment" and signed by every member of Congress. As a clerk to the Secretary of the Continental Congress, Matlack was chosen to inscribe the historic document that now rests on display in the National Archives. Matlack is also known to have penned in 1775 George Washington's commission as Commander-in-Chief of the Army of the United Colonies (Continental Army), among other important documents of the time."
