Signing Their Lives Away tells the story of the eclectic group of statesmen, soldiers, and scoundrels who signed the Declaration of Independence—and the strange fates that awaited them. Some rose to the highest levels of United States government, but a surprising number would spend time in debtors’ prison. Signer George Wythe was murdered by his nephew. Button Gwinnett was killed in a duel. And of course, Samuel Adams achieved fame as a patriot-brewer. The cover of this beautiful book unfolds to display a copy of the Declaration itself!
