Review: For You They Signed


Of all the eras of history, the early American period is my absolute favorite. So, it was with great anticipation that I awaited the arrival of Marilyn Boyer's new book For You They Signed.

I can honestly say that it was well worth the wait! My first thought, upon the book's arrival, was that this beautiful, hard backed book would be well suited to a place on my coffee table. Of course, it is so much more than a conversation piece. From cover to cover, it is packed full of useful and intriguing information as well as lovely artwork.

With the turn of every page, Mrs. Boyer gives a glimpse into the character and the lives of the men who helped shape our nation - the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

For You They Signed is set up so that it can be used in a variety of settings. From personal reading, family devotions, small group study or homeschooling, the possibilities are endless. Purchasers of this book are also given the opportunity to download a companion guide free of charge! As a home school mom, this book has been a welcomed addition to our history curriculum.

The study of each signer is concise enough so as not to be overwhelming, yet packed full of information that will keep the readers interest. In it, you'll discover the answers to such things as:

  • Which signer had his house burned due to his support for the Patriots? 
  • Who instigated the Boston Tea Party? 
  • Which man secretly imported weapons for the army largely out of his own resources? 
  • Who was the first signer to die? 
And so much more!

I applaud Mrs. Boyer's efforts in writing this book and her hard work has certainly paid off. The end result? A resource that any person with an interest in history and our godly heritage should not be without.
