Signing Their Lives Away introduces readers to the fifty-six statesmen, soldiers, slaveholders, and scoundrels who signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776-and the many strange fates that awaited them. Some prospered and rose to the highest levels of United States government, while others had their homes and farms seized by British soldiers.
Complete with portraits of the signers, as well as a facsimile of the Declaration of Independence (located on the inside of the book jacket), this book provides an entertaining and enlightening narrative for history buffs of all ages.
