    I was wondering/hoping/looking to find a font that kind of looks like the handwriting that would have been used to write, for example, the Declaration of Independence? A late 1700s early 1800s style of handwriting, flowy and loopy-like. So if anyone knows of any font or fonts like that, that would be great, I'd love to see it...thanks in advance :)

    Hi,

    First have a look at wikipedia:

    and read about the italic script AKA chancery cursive:

    There are a few around. But without a sample it is not possible to say which one fits what you want.

    The P22 Type Foundry has a whole set based on the Declaration of Independence, and it is called simply "P22 Declaration". It includes Script, Signatures and Blackletter typefaces. These can be purchased together or singly at either P22 or My Fonts.
