Thomas Stone National Historic Site

National Park Service, Maryland.

Marylanders like Thomas Stone had a difficult choice; stay at peace or risk everything they held dear: lives, fortunes, and sacred honor, to protect American rights. Thomas Stone made that choice, and established his legacy when he became one of 56 men to sign the Declaration of Independence, while the powerful words, "All Men Are Created Equal," moved thousands of enslaved to seek their freedom.
