My Review of Signing Their Lives Away: The Fame and Misfortune of the Men Who Signed the Declaration of Independence

Signing Their Lives Away: The Fame and Misfortune of the Men Who Signed the Declaration of Independence

Signing Their Lives Away: The Fame and Misfortune of the Men Who Signed the Declaration of Independence by Denise Kiernan

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This is the quintessential “bathroom reader”, a collection of short biographical sketches of the men who signed the Declaration of Independence. We sometimes forget in hindsight that there was a lot of risk and danger in this since they were essentially committing treason against the lawful King, and that kind of thing can get a guy killed. Even without that, it involved material risk. So this book is not a “must read”, but neither is it a waste of time. If you are a history buff, this can be enjoyable.
