Jefferson's original rough draft was first submitted to Benjamin Franklin and John Adams for their thoughts and changes.

The entire committee reviewed after Franklin and Adams's changes. After much discussion 26 changes were made from Jefferson's original draft. The Committee presented it to Congress on Friday June 28th which ordered it to lie on the table.
