Meeting the Signers is turning out to be quite a task. I took on the role of Constitution Week Chairman for my DAR chapter (http://www.darchciago.org) in part because the meeting minute would be fairly easy for me. So last August, I sat down at the computer on a rainy afternoon and started writing. First it was women's suffrage. Check. On to civil rights. Hold everything. I'm boring myself to tears. This stuff has been done to death. I needed a new approach and after much brain racking decided it would be interesting to take a look at the constitution by taking a look at the lives of the men who signed it. My "Meet the Signers" series was born and is turning out to be quite the research project. As it turns out, this is the stuff that gets my creative juices flowing.
