Tidbits about the Constitutionalists:

 by Veteran Thomas Hughes.

Five were captured by British soldiers and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary War. Nine of the fifty six fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary war. they signed and pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor. 



Twenty four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants. Nine were farmers, well educated and plantation owners. they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well their punishment would be death if they were captured. Thomas McKean was so hounded by the British that he put his family in hiding. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. 



His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton , Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton. At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt. Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed.


The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months. John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished. So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots. 

It's not much to ask for the price they paid. Remember:

freedom is never free! I hope you will show your support by sending this to as many people as you can, please. It's time we get the word out that patriotism is NOT a sin, and the Fourth of July means more than beer, picnics, and baseball games. True "reflection" is a part of this country's greatness. Please be a participant.
