The Fifty-Six Men

 

CUBMASTER: As we come to the end of our pack meeting, I would ask that you stop for a moment and think with me about the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence over 200 years ago.

Five were captured or imprisoned in the war that followed. Nine died of wounds or hardships. Twelve lost their homes. Seventeen lost everything they owned. Every one of them was hunted. most were driven into hiding. They were offered immunity, rewards, the return of their property, or the freedom of loved ones if they would give up their cause. That cause was freedom. No one did. Not one man broke his pledge. Because of men like that... men of dedication and purpose... we enjoy living in a free country today.
