Fun Facts:

  • Smith was elected to the second Continental Congress in late July 1776, after the vote on the Declaration, but before the signing on August 2nd, thus he signed.

  • He was very cagey about his age, and most of his papers were destroyed in a fire the year before his death, so his date of birth remains a mystery.
