Signers of the Declaration of Independence — Road trip to their birthplaces and homes


This is one of the first in our series of "Historic America Road Trips" and is based on a road trip sent in by a member of The History List community, Betsy Havens. You can read her story here.

There was such a great response to that road trip, with many suggestions of sites that should be added, that we split it in two: This and "Patriots of the American Revolution."

If you have suggestions for additions to this trip, please add them in the comments below. Based on the response, we're also creating more "Historic America Road Trips," covering many different regions, eras, and themes. If you have suggestions, or, like Betsy, if you have an entire trip to share, please let us know. If we publish your trip, you'll receive full credit—and your choice of a shirt from The History List Store.

You can also get your own copy of the Declaration of Independence printed on a historic press.  Learn more here.  And before you set out on your trip, you can pick up the perfect t-shirt for you and sticker for your car (or laptop, windows and more) and support the preservation of local history.  Read more about our mission.
