1988 Signers of the Declaration: Historic Places Commemorating the Signing of the Declaration of Independence, Editor: Robert G. Ferris (read 9 Mar 1986) This is a Government book giving short biographies of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. It also told of buildings associated with them, but I cheated on the accounts of the houses since I read the descriptions very fast. The biographies were interesting. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0936478071, Paperback)

The fifty-six brave men who signed the Declaration of Independence had nothing material to gain but everything to lose. They knew that if the British captured them, they would be tried for treason against the King of England and could be put to death. This book tells what happened to each of the Signers during and after the American Revolution--stories of hardship, sacrifice, and courage in the cause of freedom. An introduction summarizes the events that led the Founding Fathers to adopt one of the most inspiring and influential documents in the history of the world. Short biographies of each of the signers follow. An appendix reprints the complete text of the Declaration of Independence and summarizes the history of the document itself. The book measures 6 X 9 inches, has 180 pages and a laminated paper cover. Ninety-two black and white illustrations include portraits of each of the Signers and paintings and photographs of other aspects of this story.
