While most children grasp the importance of America's Declaration of Independence, few experience the lives of its multifarious signatories. Few read of the trials & tribulations of those who risked their "lives, fortunes & sacred honor" for the liberty we dearly cherish. LIVES OF THE SIGNERS OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, originally published in 1848, provides a brief biography of each of these men. These biographies, accompanied by fifty engravings, illuminate "the chief events in the lives of the men who stood sponsors at the baptism of blood of our infant republic." Children will rediscover the private & public virtues of America's most venerated fathers; they will relive the creation of the most stable & enviable nation in the world. LIVES OF THE SIGNERS also offers an instructive survey of the causes of Independence, simplifying the Declaration with discussion & analysis for each grievance. An excellent tool for the promising young scholar, & a worthy addition to any library. Bookstores will prosper as patrons reach for the distinctive & beautifully embossed cover. This & other books - including several historical reprints - as well as videos & audios are available from WallBuilders, Inc., P.O. Box 397, Aledo, TX 76008, 1-800-873-2845. Discounts available, net 30, returns on overstock.… (mere)

I love learning about history, it's kind of my thing. And I've recently started to grow more of an interest in the american revolutionary war era. I did enjoy this book, even if I did find it overly dramatic at points, I did learn a lot about the signers that I had never heard of and probably wouldn't look up myself. The second half I feel like dragged on longer than it should have though. I understand what the author was going for with explaining everything, considering this reads like a college textbook, but this was just...too much. I would recommend this book if you want to learn more about these men though and what lead up to them signing the declaration and what happened after. It is an interesting read, just realize it is a very slow read. 3.5 out of 5 stars. ( )

This book was originally published in 1848, and it shows. Each signer was a man of superior intelligence and integrity, with no faults whatsoever! Having said that, it may be the only book that brings all of these men together. I found it surprising how many of the signers had read the law. And, those that hadn't, it seemed, were medical doctors. But then there was Dr. Franklin. To give a bit of the flavor of the writing, "At length, the harmony between himself and his brother was interrupted, and he left his service...." At any rate, he was neither a doctor nor lawyer, but was held in very high esteem.

The book also contains the Declaration of Independence, the Articles if Confederation, the United States Constitution, and the Stamp Act.

The Stamp Act is a MUST read! It really will make you wonder what Parliament was thinking! ( )

This book provides a brief overview of the lives of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence. It is a good book to begin with if you are looking for information on the Signers. The book also provides Thomas Jefferson's version of the Declaration, along with the subsequent changes made by the congress. It also gives the Articles of Confederation, the US Constitution, and the Stamp Act. This book provides a lot of information for the beginning student of the Declaration of Independence. ( )
