Carroll, Daniel (1730–1796), an American Revolutionary patriot. He was one of the signers of the United States Constitution. From 1781 to 1784 he was a delegate to the Continental Congress. He was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention in 1787, and was a senator from Maryland to the First Congress of the United States (1789–91). Carroll was born in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. His brother was John Carroll; Charles Carroll was his cousin.
President Jefferson sent a couple of his representatives over to France to buy the city of New Orleans. What he got was the Louisiana Purchase, a patch of land that nearly doubled the size of the young nation.
Forget George Washington’s cherry tree and Ben Franklin’s inveterate womanizing. You're about to meet patriots you've never heard of, plus a few you thought you knew.
