Hottest Signers of the Declaration of Independence

My nineteen-year-old sister-in-law Kristin and her friend Erin have devoted time out of their busy schedules to compile a list of the top three hottest signers of the Declaration of Independence. I don't really have my own opinion, but I thought it was worth posting the list as a public resource.

3. Matthew Thornton

Represented: New Hampshire

Outside of Signing the Declaration, Best Known For: Serving as surgeon to the New Hampshire militia, writing political essays, presiding over the New Hampshire House of Representatives, drafting the first New Hampshire state constitution

Likes: Microscopes, hygiene, ferryboats

Dislikes: Syphilis, small pox

Fun Fact: He arrived late to the Continental Congress, just barely in time to sign his name.

Kristin and Erin Say: "Surgeon name: Doctor McTreaty"

2. Thomas Jefferson

Represented: Virginia

Outside of Signing the Declaration, Best Known For: Becoming the third President, agreeing to the Louisiana Purchase, founding the University of Virginia, having an affair with one of his slaves, and actually writing the Declaration

Likes: Books, fine wine, architecture, horticulture

Dislikes: Public speaking, the Supreme Court

Fun Fact: He was the first President to shake hands with foreign dignitaries rather than bow to them.

Kristin and Erin Say: "He flirted his way into the rankings . . . plus he has a nice house and an extensive organic garden."

1. Arthur Middleton

Represented: South Carolina

Outside of Signing the Declaration, Best Known For: Leading South Carolina's American Party, lending his name to a WWII navy transport ship, becoming a Revolutionary War P.O.W.

Likes: European music, literature, and art

Dislikes: Loyalists

Fun Fact: His fellow South Carolinans elected him Governor in 1778, but he declined the post.

Kristin and Erin Say: "If you look like him, call me."

Well ladies, Arthur Middleton is my ancestor, and although I don't resemble him in any way (plus I'm a woman) my cousins look very much like him... sorry though, they're taken. :)

"Tube Air" which is visible in several small circles on the midsole of the shoe, "Total Air" which is basically just another word for full Air Max cushioning, "Tuned Air," which is a system of individual pods supposedly "tuned" to different areas of the foot
