The Spirit of '76 app brings together the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence, plus Robert R. Livingston (a member of the committee to draft the Declaration, though not a signer), and George Washington. You will find a variety of biographical tidbits relating to their faith, careers, education, youth, and the founding of the United States of America as documented in "The Lives of the Signers" by B.J. Lossing.

In it, you'll also find a collection of quotations and links to their various writings revealing the thoughts and principles of these founders.

To further illuminate the setting for America's founding, you'll find descriptions of various events and topics spanning the eighteenth and early nineteenth century.
