This bronze sculpture replicates John Trumbull's famous painting Declaration of Independence that is displayed in the Rotunda of the United States Capitol. It depicts the presentation of the Declaration of Independence to the Continental Congress in Independence Hall on June 28, 1776, by the drafting committee, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Roger Sherman and Robert Livingston (shown seated to the left of the table).
Forty-two of the 56 signers of the Declaration are portrayed; Trumbull originally intended to include the 56 signers, but was unable to obtain likenesses for all of them. He also portrayed five people who did not sign the Declaraion, but who were present on June 28th. Because the Declaration was debated and signed over a period of six to eight weeks, the men shown here were never in Independence Hall at the same time.
The sculpture is a donation from Dr. QiongZhao (Ellen) Schicktanz, a naturalized Asian-American artist, in gratitude for her life as an American Citizen.
