A Convenient Fact Sheet on the Declaration from the National Archives

US-NationalArchives-LogoThe National Archives & Records Administration is the keeper of the United States’ most cherished documents such as the Declaration of Independence. In addition, NARA maintains one of the better federal Web sites dedicated to both history and historical research, providing a number of handy reference tools and on-line document searches for users who are interested amateurs or professional historians.

One of the more helpful resources is a fact sheet on the signers of the Declaration. The information is basic: their names, states, dates of birth and death, religion, and other demographic facts. However, for a quick reference it is unbeatable. You can even download a copy to your computer.
