🌟🌟🌟 56 Men That Signed The
🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 #DeclarationOfIndependence

🇺🇸🌟🇺🇸 #PriceTheyPaid ❤️

@_IamAnita_D
🇺🇸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 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.

🇺🇸 WHAT KIND OF MEN WERE THEY❓
🇺🇸 Twenty four were lawyers
and jurists.

🇺🇸 Eleven were merchants, nine
were farmers and large plantation
owners; men of means, well
educated, but they signed the
Declaration of Independence
knowing full well the penalty
would be death if they were
captured.
🇺🇸 Caeter Braxton Of Virginia, s
wealthy planter and trader, saw
hiss ships swept away from the
seas by the British Navy.
He sold his home and properties
to pay his debts.
He died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the
British that he was forced to move his family .
🇺🇸 He served in the Congress without
pay, and his family was kept in hiding.
His possessions were taken from him,
and poverty was his reward.

🇺🇸 Vandals or soldiers looted the properties
Of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett,
Hayward, Rutledge and Milleton.
🇺🇸 At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas
Nelson Jr. noted that the British General
Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson
Home for his headquarters. He quietly
Urged General George Washington
To open fire.
The home was destroyed and Nelson
died bankrupt.
🇺🇸 Francis Lewis had his home and
properties destroyed. The enemy jailed
his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside
as she was dying . Their 13 children fled for
their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid
to waste.
🇺🇸
For more than a year he lived in forests
And caves, returning home to find his
wife dead and his children gone .
🇺🇸 So, take a few minutes while enjoying
Your 4th Of July Holliday.

🔴⚪️🔵 THANK THESE #PATRIOTS ....

IT’S NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK, FOR
THE PRICE THEY PAID.

🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸❤️ REMEMBER...
FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE‼️
