Our Ancestors, The Signers
The Declaration of Independence holds a unique place in the history of our country—and together with the Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights, ranks as one of the three greatest documents in the English-speaking world.
Who are the 56 men who signed the document?
The single document that would serve the highest patriotic purpose humanity has ever known? The one document that has surpassed all others as a record of American identity, assertion of human rights, and unanimous affirmation of freedom? Who are those men?
And maybe even more thought-provoking, who are their descendants?
These are the questions we at the Descendants of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence are asking and answering, to help more people discover truths and uncover intrigue contained within this document—one that lives on today, through descendants of the original American heroes.
