    The Mecklenburg Declaration was a declaration of independence made by citizens of North Carolina in 1775, a full year before Jefferson penned THE Declaration of Independence Because the first known reference to the document was in 1819 and no authentic copy of the original has ever been found, it remains highly controversial.In The Declaration, Mr Hedbor offers us a fictional account of a present day family finding a broadside of the Mecklenburg Declaration in the attic of their Revolution era The Mecklenburg Declaration was a declaration of independence made by citizens of North Carolina in 1775, a full year before Jefferson penned THE Declaration of Independence Because the first known reference to the document was in 1819 and no authentic copy of the original has ever been found, it remains highly controversial.In The Declaration, Mr Hedbor offers us a fictional account of a present day family finding a broadside of the Mecklenburg Declaration in the attic of their Revolution era house But what makes the story so effective is a side by side narrative of events taking place two hundred years before We re actually able to live the history being discovered in the attic.As ever, Mr Hedbor s strength lie in his ability to make the past come alive by giving it a face and a name and a heart I am especially a fan of the careful vernacular he uses that fits the time period so well And I love that he chooses to illustrate lesser know corners of the Revolution I m a history geek, but the Mecklenburg Declaration was only a hazy name in the back of my mind from a long ago college course This gave me a new facet of a much loved era to ruminate about I confess I read up on it a bit afterward, and Mr Hedbor s story rings completely true Highly recommended

    This is my favorite book of the series Lars always provides an unusual perspective for his stories and I liked this one that went between contemporary and historical times, telling the history of the family and of the Revolution.I love this series

    Katie Harris, near modern day Charleston, is helping her grandmother clear her house in preparation for moving into a nursing home Starting in the attic Katie finds an ancient trunk bearing the name Elizabeth Harris Inside she finds letters and documents dating to the Revolutionary period An historian from the university arrives to authenticate them and uncovers an evenearth shattering and plan changing discovery Nearly two hundred and fifty years earlier Justin Harris ekes a living Katie Harris, near modern day Charleston, is helping her grandmother clear her house in preparation for moving into a nursing home Starting in the attic Katie finds an ancient trunk bearing the name Elizabeth Harris Inside she finds letters and documents dating to the Revolutionary period An historian from the university arrives to authenticate them and uncovers an evenearth shattering and plan changing discovery Nearly two hundred and fifty years earlier Justin Harris ekes a living on his tobacco farm on the same piece of land that Katie s Gram occupies today, however, his dreams of peace and prosperity are haunted by the growing rebellion Risking all by joining the Whigs cause, Justin earns a commendation for his heroism in defense of Charles Town, but it comes with hefty price.This homey tale continues relating the stories of two generations of the Harris family separated bythan two centuries Being a fan of both history and genealogy, this book had much appeal for me I am also greatly enad of Charleston and the Low Country in general, so all aspects of The Declaration were calling me However, I must offer a constructive criticism the dialogue is unconvincing The characters never speak to one another without referring to each other by name If a husband and wife are talking, how frequently do they call each other by their proper names I was particularly bothered by the conversation of the slave, Terrance, who spoke like he had been educated at Eton and referred to Justin as Mister Harris instead of Massa Ignoring the overly formal speech and the political correctness, Lar D.H Hedbor s Declaration is worthy of attention
