It is sometimes reffered to as the National Treasure because it is one of the most valued and highly guarded documents in the history of the United States. There was also a movie called National Treasure about a man who finds a map on the back of the Declaration of Independence that leads to the worlds greatest treasure originally guarded by the Knights Templar.

It was signed by 56 men. Have you not see National Treasure?

In some ways, yes. A lot of the clues are based on real history, but there's no treasure map on the back of The Declaration of Independence.

According to National Archives: "In case you were wondering, there is writing on the back of the original, signed Declaration of Independence. But it is invisible, does it include a map, as the recently released Disney feature film, National Treasure, suggests. The writing on the back reads: 'Original Declaration of Independence, dated 4th July 1776.'

The writing on the back of the Declaration of Independence reads:"Original Declaration of Independence dated 4th July 1776"It is at the bottom and written upside down.Source: US National Archives and Records Administration website^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Is correct, however there is no secret code or numbers that leads to a clue to another clue to another clue. National Treasure is not real and Nicholas Cage and the people did NOT get the real Document.

Charles Carroll. Believe it or not, he did sign the declaration of independence, and he was the last signing survivor! National Treasure isn't all made up! I hope i answered your question

The large house shown at the end of the film "National Treasure" is called the Charles Carroll House. It belonged to Charles Carroll, who was the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence. The house is located in Annapolis, Maryland.

Try National Treasure .It is an action packed movie including a plot to steal the Declaration of Independece in order to keep it safe. I will say no more for fear of ruining the movie.

Depending on if you are talking about the first National Treasure the National Archives (where you can actually see the declaration) located in Washington DC is the location where Benjamin Gates crashes the formal evening stealing the Declaration of Independence. If you are talking about the second National Treasure film where the president is kidnapped then the location of the formal party is Mount Vernon a former plantation located on the Potomac river where George Washington used to live and is currently interred.

My belief is yes. All the facts in National Treasure are true. but there is in fact A REAL TREASURE that we know of. For example, the Liberty bell was cast by Past and Stow. But the clues all put together should lead to a treasure . But please, ask the FBI before you steal the Declaration of Independence! :) I hope i answered your question :)

Cage plays Benjamin Gates, a historian and amateur cryptologist searching for a lost treasure, once protected by the Knights Templar and hidden by the Freemasons during the early years of the United States. A coded map on the back of the Declaration of Independence points to the location of the "national treasure", but Gates is not alone in his quest. Whoever can steal the Declaration and decode it first, will find the greatest treasure in history.

Charles Carroll name appears on the Declaration of Independence, he was a real person and the last survivor who signed it.

In the first National Treasure, the decleration of Independence is kept in the National Archives. The Silence Dogood letters, which are real but don't have a code to find "the templar treasure" are kept in the Benjamin Franklin Museum, most likely in Philadelphia. hopefully i answered your question. :)
