The Founding Fathers

It’s tempting to imagine the Founding Fathers as a group of like-minded individuals who, in a moment of opportunity and clarity, easily built a unified nation from common ideals.  Reality, of course, did not follow such a direct narrative.  The men – and women – that came together to craft a new nation argued and compromised just as much as we do today.  America’s nature and values are not written in stone, nor have they ever been.  

Rather than a monolithic entity, we re-imagine the Founding Fathers as different critters, each with their own special traits and abilities.
