where'd you find that statistic, Dr. Bill?
here's a quote from the Snopes article:
The implication of the article is that many of the Declaration's signers were killed, injured, or tortured; suffered serious illness due to mistreatment; or were stripped of their wealth and possessions for having dared to put their names on that famous document. The truth is that only one man, Richard Stockton, came to harm at the hands of the British as a direct result of his having signed the Declaration of Independence, and he isn't even mentioned here. (italics added)
I'm not trying to pick a fight, just trying to get the facts straight.
