Harvard Researchers have found a second Copy of the Declaration of Independence

If only Nicholas Cage had found it first.

Two researchers at Harvard were looking through archives when they stumbled across a piece of parchment. The Boston Globe reported Friday that researchers Emily Sneff and Danielle Allen found the copy in a records office in southern England. The only other parchment copy is maintained by the National Archives in Washington. The two dated the document to the 1780s. They say it was found in the archives in Chichester, and is believed to have originally belonged to a Duke of Richmond known as the “Radical Duke” for his support of Americans during the Revolutionary War.

Now we just need to check if there’s a map on the back of this copy.
