Overview

One of the most important books in American History!


 Who were the courageous men that risked their lives for the glory of American independence? Which one was killed in an old fashioned dual? Who was poisoned to death?




  • Why and how the Declaration of Independence was written?

  • Why did they risk their lives, families, and possessions for the sake of independence?

  • Who was the signer nicknamed the 'Father of American Medicine'? 

  • Why was there an impeachment trial for a signer and what was his response?

  • Who were the two signer's that died on the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence?
