Unknown Speaker

Unknown Speaker

The signing of the Declaration of Independence by any man would result in gruesome torture and death by the British Colonialists. With every argument put forward by America’s founding fathers, there were shouts of ‘Treason!! Treason!!!’. It was then that an unknown man arose, dressed in a black cape, to deliver a stirring oration. His speech went on for some time and it struck such a chord that the fathers then descended into a frenzy to sign the document, and, within a few minutes, the Declaration was born. However, when the signers turned to congratulate the man, he had simply vanished. Nobody knew who he was or where he went.
