Founding Fathers


Imagine the kind of courage it takes to tell the most powerful nation on earth that they have no dominion over you, that their king is no longer your sovereign, and that you rebel against the only kind of government that most men of your day have ever known.

Brave men did precisely that on this day in 1776.

They committed treason against the king, putting their lives at risk by signing their name on a declaration of independence that would simply be known forever after as the Declaration of Independence.

Thank you, gentlemen, for embarking on that journey into liberty.
