These thumbnail sketches of the 56 brave, yet flawed, men of accomplishment and purpose who signed the Declaration offer insight into the real story of how the United States was formed. Their stories recount their sacrifice, pragmatism, wisdom and boldness that led the colonies to take a stand against the most formidable imperial nation on earth.

The authors present frank, concise and interesting summaries of signers, both famous and obscure, set against a solid historical background of the events which led to independence. With the preponderance of revisionist history so in vogue today, it is refreshing to read the facts as they existed at the time, devoid of any political spin.

The stories told here of people from strikingly ordinary roots who rose to extraordinary heights are surprising and inspirational. Read these "reality TV" snapshots of truly talented, real-life American heroes!

Whether you are interested in history or not, whether you have a lot of time or not, this is a great summary of the signers along with some statistics on demographics. After reading it becomes a good reference book to add to your library.

An outstanding historical perspective of the men who "put it all on the line". These were men of conviction: fathers, husbands, pastors, farmers, teachers, sailors, scientists, tradesmen and most of all, spiritual men. No matter what their trade, almost all believed in the God of Abraham, Jacob and Isaac. These are the heroes who stood to lose it all (and some did), having been drawn together by a common cause, a desire for freedom -- a freedom they believed was theirs as a God given right. The "Signers of the Declaration of Independence" gives a vivid and detailed account of the shared values, faith and desire to live as free men as they believe God intended. For the skeptics who have attempted to paint these men as a bunch of Deists, nothing could be further from the truth. A study of the national archives which holds the truths, values, faith and character of these men, the author correctly described the majority of these men to be of the Protestant faith. It was this faith in Providence that guided their cause and gave them the courage and strength to affix their signatures to a document that would change the course of the world as they knew it.

A great book with so much information regarding our Founding Fathers. Information about their lives, their part of the Declaration of Independence and what happened to them after the signing. Amazing how much they sacrificed for this great country. This should be required reading by all students so that they have a "TRUE" understanding what the Declaration of Independence stands for and the sacrifices that were made to allow the great freedoms that this country grants all of us.
