I have had 2 marvellous trips to The States so I didn't know which of my souveneirs to share with you all.  Then I realised I had the perfect picture on my bedroom wall to share.

In 1989 we went to Willaimsburg and they were printing out copies of The Declaration of Independence, which they were selling for a quarter ... uless you were a Brit. Then we were given a copy free!

Here it is on the wall-

I love that they gave it to you free. Trying to convert you to our point of view, maybe? *g*
I just laughed when I went up, coin in hand to pay, and as soon as spoke they asked me if I was a Brit ... and so I got a free scroll! ... And, one for each of my parents who were with me on the trip!!
Heh. I should have taken a photo of one of our copies, come to think of it. The UK government archives have quite a few, for some reason. *g*

They must have wanted to prove something!
This made me laugh!

It made me smile at the time - and whenever I see it I smile again
