George Washington. John Adams. Benjamin Franklin. These great leaders--and many others--made innumerable contributions that laid the groundwork for our nation. But who were they really?
In actuality, the founding fathers were a diverse group of men and not the homogenous collection history has shaped them into. Some were puritanical but some were philanderers; some were wealthy while others were plagued with money woes.
Inside you'll discover the triumphs, failures, and little-known facts about our founding fathers, including:
- Why George Washington never lived in the White House
- What John Adams and Thomas Jefferson stole from Shakespeare's birthplace
- Why Alexander Hamilton never ran for president
- How Thomas Paine narrowly escaped execution in France
- Why Thomas Jefferson kept grizzly bears on the White House lawn
- F+W Media, June 2011
