http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Signing_of_Declaration_of_Independence_by_Armand-Dumaresq,_c1873.png It would be an honor to have people remember your name all over the world, and never have anyone forget it. John Hancock is one of those people. John Hancock was the President of the Continental Congress, so he was really important. He was born January 12, 1737 and died October 8, 1793. Hancock was the first to sign the Declaration of Independence; in fact, he was the only one to sign on July 4, 1776. John Singleton Copley (1738–1815)

He was born on January 17, 1706 and died on April 17, 1790. Ben Franklin was known all around the world. His life was a statement of what Americans strive to be. He describes himself as a diplomat. Believe it or not, Franklin died a more wealthy and famous man than Thomas Jefferson. Benjamin was worshiped wherever his name was known. Billy Hathorn

My Prezi project follows Fair Use Law because my project is an educational research project. I am using published, some highly creative and nonfiction work, but I am using a small amount that is appropriate for meeting educational objectives. Also my project will have no significant effect on the market or potential market for copyrighted work, only a few copies will be made and sources will be credited. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
