Biographies of the Founding Fathers

   Colonial Hall now contains 103 biographical sketches of America's founding fathers. At this time we have divided them up into 3 groups:
   Signers of the Declaration
   Signers of the Articles of Confederation
   Signers of the U. S. Constitution

   As you will see there are still many biographies that need to be added to our site, including a new category: Other Founding Fathers.

   The biographies on this site are primarily from 1 of the following 2 sources:
   Lives of the Signers to the Declaration of Independence, by the Rev. Charles A. Goodrich. Published in 1829.
   The United States Manual of Biography and History, by James V. Marshall. Published by James B. Smith & Co., in Philadelphia in the year 1856.

   These biographies were scanned into our site. We've done our best to eliminate errors, including attempting to modernize the spelling, however, there may be mistakes that we have overlooked. If you see any, typographical or otherwise, please let us know.
