True or False: John Hancock made his signature so large on the Declaration of Independence because he was almost blind and wanted to be able to see it.

False! He wrote in large letters to show the king of England that he believed in American freedom.

He was elected as the governor of Massachusetts eleven times. As one of the richest men of time, John used his fortune to help finance the Revolutionary War. After John's father died, his childless aunt and uncle raised him as their own son.

Ages 7-9
