Review: Signing Their Lives Away
Signing Their Lives Away by Joseph D'Agnese
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a very fun book to read for me as a student of the Revolutionary War. It gives an average of 3 small pages to each and every signer of the Declaration of Independence, and shines a light into the lives of the men who signed that great document. The book is humorous and sometimes a little irreverent, but its such an easy and entertaining read that almost anyone would be able to enjoy it.
At a time like now where our government is increasingly out of touch with the average American and is coming to resemble the tyrannical British government of the 1770s it is a great reminder to see how these men valued freedom and were willing to risk their fortunes, families and very lives in standing for what is right.
