Publisher's Summary

The Founding Fathers Series sheds new light on the revolutionary leaders who planned, fought for, and created the United States of America. This series is about the people who led America from monarchy to republic, as well as the tools they used. Perhaps more importantly, it is about the principles upon which the American republic was founded. The men who initiated "the great experiment" of American freedom and democracy are examined here, as are the events, ideas, and profound documents that changed the course of world history.

Though they had different backgrounds, skills, and ideas, the Founding Fathers came together to forge a new nation and persevered against the odds to achieve America's independence. In this edition, the editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica examine the Declaration of Independence, as well as the lives of 19 of the men who signed this historic document.

short, dry and to the point

Exactly what it says in the title - short bios on each person. Just enough for a high school student to digest. What every American should WANT to know.
