56 Men

 

They pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. What kind of men were the 56 that signed the Declaration of Independence?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated. They signed the Declaration of Independence with the understanding they would pay with their lives if they were captured.

  2. Very appropriate timing. Thought provoking. Showing the braveness, the ultimate sacrifices the brave, honorable, intelligent, wise these men truly were. Thought provoking with the realizations there are not immediate manifestations of higher goals. What hardships they endured. Their sacrifices should never be erased or forgotten. This reminder so important. Thank you NMH

  3. Real Men. Men of dignity and a srength of character that is hard to find now. Men have been brought to their knees with gender bending monstrous biases. We bought the lie… Young women, girls, are far too mean looking. Coddled lives we live, with government handouts, paid for with our own souls, that have destroyed the will to be free. Do we even know what that means?
