Our History Everyone Should Know


Dear Editor,

The story of what happened to the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence is information that should be a history lesson for every child.

Our forefathers paid a terrible price to create and protect the freedom of future generations yet to be born.

These 56 brave men signed our Declaration of Independence. In the process they pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. As a result:

Five of those signers were later captured and tortured before being killed.

Twelve of the signers had their homes ransacked and burned to the ground.

Two lost their sons fighting in the Revolutionary War.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from the wounds and hardships.

In addition to the death of the treason offenders; personal goods were confiscated by the state. Their family, including their heirs, could not own property.

The King of England called these 56 men traitors and sentenced them to a terrible death. Those who were tried for treason was hung until they were

unconscious then cut down and revived. They were then disemboweled and beheaded. They they were cut into quarters which were then boiled in oil.

Finally, their remains were scattered abroad so their last resting place of these so called traitors would remain forever unnamed, dishonored and unknown.

This is a classic example of what can happen when a government becomes too powerful.

In the 225 years that followed Americans fought wars around the world to protect and preserve the freedom for all of us. Now it is our turn.

We need to stay informed on what harm the progressives are doing to America by exercising unconstitutional actions to increase and protect their power.

Mid-term elections in November are our opportunity to take back our country.
