In 1877, among the red rocks of Southern Utah, the signers of the Declaration of Independence twice visited a sleeping Apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Wilford Woodruff recounted these vivid visions a number of times during his lifetime because they were more than forgettable dreams. The men gathered around him demanded action. They knew that Woodruff had just helped inaugurate proxy temple ordinances for faithful family members who had died, and now they wanted those same ordinances they wanted spiritual freedom. But who were these men who came to Woodruff? Some stand like titans Franklin, Jefferson, Hancock, John Adams, and Samuel Adams. Others are lesser known yet had a huge influence on the passage of the Declaration and the founding of the United States of America. These noblemen who came to Woodruff by night brought resounding justification to a church rejected by the nation; the founders of freedom were coming to the Mormons for what only those people could give them spiritual freedom. The requests in Woodruff s dreams were quickly fulfilled, and each signer of the Declaration of Independence had his temple work completed. Visions of Freedom will bring readers face to face with the signers of the Declaration of Independence, where they can look at the lives of the eminent men and remember not just the things they achieved in life but also their final request for true freedom as they came to a sleeping Apostle in a white temple among red rocks.
