Francis Lewis, one of the 56 signers of the U.S. Declaration of Independence, was a businessman and politician who represented New York in the Continental Congress. Orphaned at a young age, he was raised by a maiden aunt who made sure that he acquired quality education. He grew up to be a mature young man and entered mercantile business. He travelled far and wide in order to expand his business and on one such trip he was taken as a prisoner by French forces during the French and Indian War. On his return to the colonies years later, he was provided vast areas of land as compensation for the years lost. He re-established his business and took an early retirement to concentrate more on politics. Lewis was born in Wales but had migrated to America at a young age and his love for his adopted motherland was phenomenal. He was one of the earliest members of Sons of Liberty, a patriotic group that fought for the protection of colonial rights against the atrocities of the British Empire. Elected as a delegate in the First and Second Continental Congress, he signed the Olive Branch Petition hoping for a peaceful negotiation with the Royal government, and freely used his wealth to campaign for the political causes he believed in.
