Deciphering the Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence is really a list of grievances against the crown, and some of their meanings are hard to decipher. NPR's Andrea Seabrook speaks with MIT history professor Pauline Maier about the reasons behind one of the nation's most celebrated documents. She is the author of American Scripture: Making the Declaration of Independence.
