    A treasure of American history not in Philadelphia or Washington, D.C. can be found in Exeter, New Hampshire. More than an acre of land, home to the historic Ladd-Gilman House and the Folsom Tavern, has a story to tell. George Washington spent time at the Tavern changing history, and house hosted some major moves and shakers in NH history. They even found a copy of the Declaration of Independence in its collection. You'll also find two drafts of the U.S. Constitution and a Purple Heart given by George Washington to some really brave soldiers.

    American Independence Museum Exeter NH

    the American Independence is a neat little museum and even though there's not alot there to see it's a still a great place to learn about the Revolutionary War history. They offer an interesting guided tour where they share fascinating insights into the drafting of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. The museum also has an annual event in July when they display the original copies of the Declaraton of Indepedence, how cool is that?....will be going to it net year;)

    Awesome. It seems worth it to see the Declaration of Independence at least once in your life! When I was a kid, there was a traveling exhibit of major documents...and I remember going when it came to Chicago. It was quite an experience.
