RW Classic Books, 2018年10月2日 - 640 頁

One of the most important books in American History! Who were the bold and courageous men that risked their lives for the glory of American independence? Which one was killed in an old fashioned dual? Who was the signer poisoned to death?



This book is filled with historical gems, such as:


-Why and how the Declaration of Independence was written 

-Biographies of fifty-six signers including Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Samuel Adams 

-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 

-General George Washington before he was President 

Who was the signer who used Peruvian bark to treat distemper, and cider to cure patients?


Discover which signer narrowly escaped death by a tomahawk and another who stood next to a man who was dead . . .and still another famous man who conducted a crazy experiment to see if his own mother would recognize him while he lodged in her home!



Bonus - 80 rare, historical photos! “Compelling history that should be required reading for everyone!”
