    Introducing John Hancock, First to Sign the Declaration of Independence

    "When I grow up I want to be a general or a sea captain and sail the seven seas. Then I can live in Boston when I'm not at sea or fighting a war somewhere," claimed young John Hancock. Volume 9 of the Young Patriots Series features Hancock's transformation from a carefree boy to a respectable man who became the President of the Continental Congress and the first signer of the Declaration of Independence.

    Snowball fights with a young Paul Revere and visits to Samuel Adams' printing press are just a few of "Johnny" Hancock's adventures growing up in the home of the American Revolution.

    Encourage your young readers to learn new vocabulary! New in John Hancock, Independent Boy is "What does That Mean" featuring definitions of unusual words in the story. As in all of the Young Patriots Series, you will also find "What Happened Next," "Fun Facts About John Hancock," and "When John Hancock Lived."
