Hi, my name is Neil Stagner. My wife Lori & I love this great nation and feel blessed to live here. We feel a debt of gratitude toward the courageous people who formed this nation.
This love for our founders has been a part of my life since I can remember, but I have kept it private. Truly, I thought a majority of people felt the same way. But boy was I wrong!
In December 2015, while visiting Charleston, SC for the holidays, I felt compelled to visit the grave sites of a few of the signers of the Declaration of Independence that I had learned about that day from our tour guide. They were less than a half miles away from where I stood, and I had no idea.
- Why didn’t I know about how close a “Signer” was to my location?
- Why would I do crazy thing, since they are no longer living?
- Why didn’t I know anything about those men who did so much for me?
I realized right then and there that I had to learn a lot more about them, and what made them tick. Then, I should pay my respects, and pray that they know how much I appreciate what they had done for my family and me. I am not trying to be dramatic here; I am just trying to explain the passion that I am feeling.
That started the biggest project I have ever dreamed up in my life. And I want to share that dream with you.
I commit to visiting all of the burial sites of the Signers of the four major founding documents of our country:
The Continental Association, 1774
The Declaration of Independence, 1776
The Articles of Confederation, 1781
The U.S. Constitution, 1787, including the Bill of Rights
That would encompass visiting the original 13 Colonies, including what is now Washington, DC. From New Hampshire in the north to Savanna Georgia in the South. At this point I have found records for 151 Signers. I have already visited 11. So I have a long way to go.
My hope is to share these travels with his viewers to help cement the memories and legacy of these great individuals and to forever meld them into your hearts.
My the sole intent to preserve our Constitutional Republic and pass this free and independent land on to our children and onto their children, etc. It is now time for my generation to take a stand for liberty!
