"This timely book takes you behind the scene and gives you firsthand accounts of the struggles and personal anxieties suffered during the months prior to July 4, 1776. In a refreshingly candid manner, each of the signers is profiled according to how his contemporaries saw him. The well-known among them are sketched here -- Thomas Jefferson, the penman of the Declaration; John Adams, the Colossus of Independence; Richard Henry Lee and Samuel Adams, the strategists who guided the Declaration through Congress. But also here are the less-known figures, and from behind their signatures they emerge as distinct and lively personalities: John Witherspoon, Arthur Middleton, Button Gwinnett, Roger Sherman, John Hancock, George Taylor, Matthew Thornton, William Whipple, and Lewis Morris." -- Taken from the book jacket flap
