John Hancock

On January 23, 1737 (N.S.), John Hancock was born in Quincy, Massachusetts. A proud Patriot of the American Revolution, he was the first to sign the United States’s Declaration of Independence. According to American lore, Hancock signed his name largely and clearly so that King George could read it without his spectacles.
