This is the story of John Hancock, American Patriot and Founding Father. When the English started imposing unfair taxes on the colonists, John Hancock decided to stand up to the injustice. He served as a delegate to the First Continental Congress; and as the president of the Second Continental Congress, and he was the first to add his bold signature to the declaration of Independence.
