约翰.汉考克出生,1737112

约翰.汉考克不只是签名好看,他也是个很会办事,能够把事情完成的人。他在1775年,任命我们未来的第一任总统,乔治华盛顿,为殖民地独立国协联军的统帅。革命之后,汉考克成为麻塞诸塞州的统辖者,让各州的自治权得到美国宪法的认可;他也积极的为这个新的国家训练海军。1793年他逝世,总共当了九任的麻州州长。下一次谁要再叫你签名,你一定会想起约翰.汉考克。


John Hancock had more than just a pretty signature. He was a man who knew how to get things done. He commissioned our future first president, George Washington, as commander in chief of the Army of the United Colonies in 1775. After the Revolution, Hancock, as governor of Massachusetts, led his state toward ratification of the U.S. Constitution. He was also active in creating a navy for the new nation. He died in 1793 while serving his ninth term as Massachusetts' governor. So the next time someone asks you for your autograph, think of John Hancock.
