Facts about the American Founding Fathers - Part 2

As part of the great gun debate madness going on, I thought it would be interesting to examine some facts about the Founding Fathers of the USA to shed light on the endless debate about the Constitution and Bill of rights, in order to better discern "what they REALLY must have meant when they wrote the consitutution and Bill of rights." The information is too much for one post so I am making multiple posts, each with a short description about the men who wrote or contributed to the Constitution and/or the Bill of rights.

please feel free to add your favorite quotes from the Founders in the comments.

  • I have ancestors who fought at Bunker Hill(and elswhere in Boston) and others who organized the Boston Tea party some were associates of Paul Revere, Samual Adams, Benjamin Franklin and John Gill. They were founding members of the original Sons of Liberty in Boston. I had ancestors who were key players in the revolution on both sides of the fight in Boston. History to me is more than a book or a written document it's part of who I am and who I could be. But most of all I am an american paid for More..
