56 Men 

Our Founding Fathers, the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence came from all walks of life, they were, lawyers, merchants, planters, farmers, agriculturists, academics, authors, surveyors, doctors, ministers, brewers, musicians, poets, printers, scientists, seamen.

Many came from great wealth for their time and many lost all they owned to support the American Revolution. Because of their sacrifice, many Americans today were able create great wealth for themselves due to the republic form of government they set up. The Founding Fathers had the foresight to see that their sacrifice would benefit the future generations of Americans and that made it all worth whatever they would have to endure.
