Benjamin Franklin Gates, played by Nicholas Cage, descends from a family of treasure-seekers who've all hunted for the same thing: a treasure hidden by the American founding fathers. This movie is yet another fictional attempt to link the freemasons, the Knights Templar and the founding of the USA.
In this scene the masonic square and compasses is depicted as having been imprinted on the back of the USA Declaration of Independence.
