Hey yall...

Happy 4th of July!





Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army, another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War. They signed, and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. Collapse )


Also, I've added a new site to my links list: Iraq-America Freedom Alliance. I think it's fitting for the 4th.
