American Scribe™

The Declaration of Independence was authored by Thomas Jefferson, but Jefferson’s is not the classic handwriting on the copies familiar to most Americans. That belonged to Timothy Matlack, an early patriot who fought in the Revolution, sat with the prosecution at Benedict Arnold’s court martial, penned a few copies of documents for General George Washington, and lived to age 99. When the Continental Congress ordered the Declaration to be "fairly engrossed on parchment," the task fell to Matlack, whose script was compact but neat and legible—perfect for the first and most famous of American documents. Now you, too, can write that way. Has a full character set (and then some).* US$39. | Order  Declaration of Independence font
