Popular American historian Benson J. Lossing was a prolific writer whose "Biographical Sketches of the Signers of the Declaration of American Independence" reads like a Who's Who of the country's earliest patriots. It reveals concise details about the more than fifty elected delegates, representing all thirteen colonies, who signed one of the most famous documents in American history. From Thomas Jefferson and John Hancock to less-remembered but equally important personages like Richard Henry Lee and Robert Morris, Lossing offers interesting facts and his own portrait engravings of the individuals who were present at the formation of the United States of America.
