Children's Literature
As a founding father of the United States, John Hancock, a wealthy merchant, risked his wealth and his life to support the colonies against Britain. When the Revolutionary War began, the task of establishing an independent country fell to leaders like John Hancock. Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, John Adams and Robert Livingston. These men produced the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and later the Bill of Rights. To Britain, John Hancock was the ultimate traitor, but to America he was the ultimate patriot. 2005, Compass Point Books, Ages 13 up.
