Jefferson wasn't the leader of the committee to draft the Declaration- John Adams was. Heck, Jeffferson wasn't even the person the committee wanted to write the Declaration. They wanted Jefferson's fellow Virginian- "Light Horse Harry" Lee to write it. Once Lee said "no", Jefferson wanted John Adams to write it. Adams wanted Jefferson to write it, and won the argument.

In question 11 the quiz erroneously has "lead," but it should be spelled "led." Led vs. lead The verb lead makes led in the past tense and as a past participle. Writers often mistakenly use lead in these roles, perhaps due to erroneous analogy with the verb read, which is uninflected. Lead is of course the correct spelling for the malleable, bluish-white element used in pipes, solder, bullets,

If I recall, there were five copies of the DOI printed. If I remember from the documentary I saw of it, rhe one on display isn't one of these origional copies. Also, acording to the same documentary, John Hancock's signature was so large the rest of the men present (not all members were there to sign), that the last several signers had a hard time fitting their names on the parchment. George Washington never lived in the White House since it wasn't buit until John Adams presidency.
