When narrowed down to the three most influential accomplishments of the US's founding fathers, the first one was the creation and signing of the Declaration of Independence. This document set the stage for the American Revolutionary War. All the statesmen who affixed their signatures to this document, released on July 4, 1776, were by British law, guilty of treason. The document helped form the US Constitution and was used by abolitionists of the antebellum days as a basis for abolishing slavery. The second accomplishment was being the "ghost" government that was behind the fighting of the war of independence from Great Britain. They used Philadelphia as its "rebel" capital city and made decisions during this crucial war. The next major accomplishment was the creation and ratification of the US Constitution. This is the basis of today's US government. At the time of its ratification, it created the first republic style of government. It can also be said to be the formation of the first republic since ancient Rome was governed as a republic, a republic based the ancient era of its time.

In a manner of speaking, these accomplishments were not only influential for the American colonies, but for the world as well.

John Adams was one of the most influential founding fathers. George Washington, a founding father was one of the most unhappy at being involved, at all. He was most unhappy that a large part of the people wanted him to be king of America. Washington, appalled at the idea, pushed the name and position, "President", and of course, that turned out to be what was used. Jefferson, Franklin, Lee and others were very involved from the Declaration of Independence on. James Madison and his wife, Abby, were influential founding fathers (and mothers). Jlexander Hamilton, a great supporter of Washington, who later became Washington's vice president was a very influential and brilliant founding father.

Thomas Paine is the author of the highly influential pamphlet "Common Sense" which presented the idea of independence to the colonies. His efforts were so influential, that he is sometimes considered to be a forgotten "Founding Father."

In my opinion it was Patrick Henry. His stirring speeches roused up the nation for independence and liberty.

The Founding Fathers included the Necessary and Proper Clause in the U.S. Constitution, to provide Congress with the ability to meet the needs of a changing country. The clause is found in Article One.

First, Joseph J. Ellis's book, Founding Brothers, is not a novel. It is a non-fiction account of the interrelationships of various Founding Fathers over certain specific issues during the time of the creation of the United States of America. We refer to men like Washington, Adams, Franklin, Jefferson and others as "Founding Fathers" because they are from prior generations. But during their lifetimes, they were of the same generations just like brothers are. The book goes into several topics where the "Founding Fathers" had some strong differences of opinion and even fought amongst themselves in much the same way that brothers argue over matters within their families. The Founding Fathers were certainly not all of the same political mind, even though it might seem that way to us now.

Thomas Jefferson was presented as a politician who had to take a lot of tough decisions in the well known book Founding Brothers. Jefferson was described as a sometimes conflicted man who ultimately wanted the best for his country.

This chapter is really confusing. In Founding Brothers, the people who attended the dinner were James Madison and Alexander Hamilton. The dinner was held at Thomas Jefferson's house. At this dinner, the topic discussed was the financial plan for the United States.

It was quite common in those days for educated gentlemen to speak, or at least read, Latin and/or French and maybe even Greek. Not all of the Founding Fathers had these accomplishments but many did. Michael Montagne
