The story of America’s Founding Fathers is a fascinating one. Its a story about how men became leaders, fought the revolutionary war and were instrumental in creation of a new country.They were leaders in their communities and hailed from good education and means. They were the men who installed the first ideals into the American Society. After having successfuly fought the Revolutionary War, they signed the declaration of Independence and drafted the Constitution of United States.

Historians always argue as to who all belong in the long list of Founding Fathers, however the most commonly accepted men who became the founders of present day America are listed below. (We’ll be sure to add resources for all in the list)
