A crucial moment in American history... 64 men met to discuss the options. They decided to issue their intent to break away from the greatest power on earth, with the largest military - England - to become a new, independent nation. They knew if they failed, it would become their own death warrant.
This document declaring boldly their intent, citing the rights that had been endowed to them by their Creator, and with the signatures of 56 brave men affixed was sent out to the world. After years of deadly war, suffering, and peril, the new nation was born in liberty and prosperity.
This is a tribute to those often-forgotten men - the 56 Signers of the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America who risked all so that we may be free.
