About Signing Their Lives Away

 
 

In 1776, fifty-six men risked their lives and livelihoods to defy King George III and signed the most important document in the history of the United States. Yet how many of these men do we actually remember? Sure, everyone knows John Hancock, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin, but who were the other 53 signers?

 

Signing Their Lives Away tells the story of the eclectic group of statesmen, soldiers, and scoundrels who signed this historic document—and the strange fates that awaited them. Some rose to the highest levels of United States government, but a surprising number would spend time in debtors’ prison. Signer George Wythe was murdered by his nephew. Button Gwinnett was killed in a duel. Thomas Lynch, Jr. was lost at sea. And of course, Samuel Adams achieved fame as a patriot-brewer.

 

Featuring a reversible dust jacket depicting a facsimile of the Declaration, Signing Their Lives Away provides an entertaining and enlightening narrative for history buffs of all ages.
