Book Details

Born to a clergyman and his wife and raised by a wealthy aunt and uncle, John Hancock truly went from rags to riches. While still a young man, Hancock lent his name, money, and position in Bostons society to the ever-growing group of colonists calling for a complete break from England. He was labeled a traitor by King George III, who put a price of 500 pounds on his head, and was hunted by members of the kings army. Hancock made his way from Massachusetts to Connecticut to Philadelphia, where, in 1775, he represented Massachusetts at the Second Continental Congress. Hancocks life progressed from wealthy businessman to rebel to Founding Father.Born to a clergyman and his wife and raised by a wealthy aunt and uncle, John Hancock truly went from rags to riches.
