In the spring of 1776, Thomas Jefferson traveled to Philadelphia to attend the Second Continental Congress. When the Desk you see below was brand new, Jefferson used it to draft the Declaration of Independence. Click here or on the photo to order plans so you can build your own piece of history.
The original Jefferson Desk can be seen at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington D.C.
