Founding Fathers on the Web

Dance with the Stars

This Independence Day weekend, celebrate by bookmarking a few basic web links on American Founding Fathers:
“The American Founders Online: An Annotated Guide to Their Papers and Publications” from the Library of Congress.
Learn about “America’s Founding Fathers: Delegates to the Constitutional Convention” (1787) from The National Archives and Records Administration.
“Presidents of the United States: George Washington”: a collection with many links from the Internet Public Library. (American flags on the site lead to other POTUS pages.)
“The Founding Fathers Unite” is one video of a few offered by the History Channel’s website.
