Scientists reveal mystery word on Declaration of Independence


www.abc.net.au

Scientists at the United States Library of Congress have revealed the moment when Thomas Jefferson altered the Declaration of Independence to set the course of American history.

This is interesting, I just came across it by chance. Pretty interesting, there is apparently a blur where a correction was made.

The original word was subjects but was changed to citizens - big difference ey.

subjects:
- a person who is subjected to experimental or other observational procedures; someone who is an object of investigation; "the subjects for this investigation were selected randomly"; "the cases that we studied were drawn from two different communities"
- subjugate: make subservient; force to submit or subdue
- being under the power or sovereignty of another or others; "subject peoples"

citizens
- an inhabitant of a city or town; especially : one entitled to the rights and privileges of a freeman
- a member of a state b : a native or naturalized person who owes allegiance to a government and is entitled to protection from it
- a civilian as distinguished from a specialized servant of the state



What a contrast - to me, it seems they put their original intent on paper first, and covered it up to provide a layer of plausible-deniability...

Thoughts?
