Two future presidents signed the Declaration of Independence.


Although the famous document had several notable signatures, two of them would be future presidents: John Adam and Thomas Jefferson.


After serving as vice president under Washington, John Adams became the second president of the United States.

Though he didn’t enjoy being vice president and described the role as “insignificant” to his wife, he held the office for two terms and won the presidency in 1796.

Adams served as president for one term, losing to his vice president in 1800.

After serving four years as Adams’ VP, Thomas Jefferson became the third president of the United States.

He is credited with drafting and being one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.
