To start your Fourth of July celebration with some inspiring stories, you can read the biographies of the 56 incredible men that signed the Declaration of Independence at ushistory(dot)org.

Thanks for posting this, Katherine. I am always inspired by the men who "pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor" for our country!
