Hamilton: Monthly Meeting @ St. Matthew-on-the-Plains Church
Nov 23 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Speaker Sandra McNamara – Declaration of Dependence 1776

The focus of this presentation is derived from a Document that was signed in November of 1776 in New York. Upon this important, yet relatively unknown document, are the signatures of 547 persons who wished to express their loyalty to the Crown. 491 more signatures than the Declaration of Independence. By signing this petition, they effectively were signing a death penalty if the new country America was formed.

An explanation of the time leading up to the signing, and by following several lives of the signers, an attempt will be made to bring life to a few of the many signatures. The petition is owned by the New York Historical Society Library and can be viewed on line.
