John Hancock had quite the illustrious history. Not only was he an American merchant, but he was a statesman and prominent patriot of the American Revolution. He was even a smuggler at one point in time. Hancock served as president of the Second Continental Congress, and he is most remembered for his large and stylish signature on the Declaration of Independence. In fact, today, when someone wants your “John Hancock,” they want your signature. What you might not know is that Hancock used his wealth to support the colonial cause. Once the U.S. gained its freedom after the Revolutionary War, Hancock spent his remaining years as Governor of Massachusetts and made sure that Massachusetts ratified the Constitution in 1788.
American life in its finest form was hard fought and won, and The Barrel Shack recognizes that and brings patriotism and country charm into your home with The Hancock.
