  • Historians baffled by handprint on Declaration of Independence - CNNPolitics.com

    Washington (CNN)It's one of the nation's most important founding documents but the Declaration of Independence -- the document that paved the way for the creation of the United States -- hasn't always been treated with the care you might expect. Since it was signed in 1776, the Declaration was haphazardly transported around the country in carriages, a sailing ship and even an unprotected car.
