The Man in the Cave and Other Stories They Signed: The Signers of the Declaration of Independence

    • Society & Culture

Who were the people who signed the document Americans celebrate on July 4th? A small part of that question is answered in this episode. An introduction to the Declaration of Independence, its importance in American history and the history of the American Revolution, makes up the bulk of this first podcast episode. Facts that many Americans would get wrong (though not a sizable amount of history buffs). Did we need a Declaration to have independence? When was it written? When was it approved? and When was it signed? Any look at the Signers of the Declaration of Independence should begin with those well known signers, but instead we start with some of the least known. John Hart, Thomas Nelson, Richard Henry Lee and Richard Stockton are featured, among others.
