One hundred years ago today, representatives of Czechs and Slovaks living in the United States came together in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and signed the “birth certificate” of the first Czechoslovak Republic.
The document, primarily authored by T.G. Masaryk, is elegantly simple and clear in its intent: that the Slovaks and Czechs would endeavor to form an independent democratic republic, that the rights and identity of Slovaks would be respected, and that Czechs and Slovaks in the United States would help make the new republic a reality.
