The links below represent individual and group responses to the signatures.  Some students chose to look at individual signators, looking for biographical material.  As they would find, these are truly significant figures.  Others chose to write analytical essays about what these men did and why it was significant.  Others chose to look at socio-political issues involved in larger issues connected to the conduct of the war including segregation, gender issues, and propaganda. An important part of this project is to document the process students undertook to work with this artifact. Some chose the role of documentarian.
