Continental Congress, July 8, 1776, for the first time read the Declaration of Independence publicly, as the famous “Liberty Bell” was run.  Congress then established a three-man committee, consisting of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin, for the purpose of designing a great seal for the United States.

Benjamin Franklin’s suggestions for the seal and motto, characterizing the spirit of this new nation, were:

Moses lifting up his wand, and dividing the red sea, and pharaoh in his chariot overwhelmed with the waters.  This motto: “Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.”

Thomas Jefferson proposed:

The children of Israel in the wilderness, led by a cloud by day, and a pillar of fire by night.
