For You They Signed
Character Studies from the Lives of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence
Deeply patriotic and passionate about America’s Christian history, in For You They Signed Marilyn Boyer has given us a massive volume (9″ x 11″) which brings to life the stories of the 56 noble men who pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to secure our freedom.
“More than 2,000 years ago, Nehemiah undertook the rebuilding of his nation. As part of the process, he constructed a ‘House of Heroes’ by which those in his generation could learn of the courage and sacrifices made by previous ones. In writing For You They Signed, Marilyn has created for today our own much-needed inspirational ‘House of Heroes’ for this generation. — David Barton, Wallbuilders
“Not since B.J. Lossing’s Lives of the Signers in 1848 has an historian so lovingly described the character and fortitude of the men who signed their names to the document that proclaimed independence from a tyrannical government. Mrs. Boyer has included a helpful study page and appropriate scriptures which make this book a handy teaching tool for learning the lives and lessons of the Founding Fathers. This is, in fact, one of those books that need to be in every family’s library, and parents would do well to insure that the next generation does not forget these men and the price they paid for our freedom.”
— Bill Potter, Historian, the Circa History Guild, Roswell, Georgia
