A new video by Ancestry.com is celebrating Independence Day by having a diverse group read the words of the Declaration of Independence. At the end of the video, it’s revealed that every person who appears in the video is the direct descendant of one of the signers of the historical document.

It’s a poignant reminder of America’s roots, where she is today, and what an incredible country can make that much progress in just over 200 years.
