The founding fathers who played a role in the birth of our nation included politicians, farmers, slave holders, activists, abolitionists, soldiers and statesmen. America’s founding fathers did not universally agree on how to organize a democratic government but they developed laws that were flexible and which could evolve as the nation grew. The United States government, they created, have built in checks and balances resulting from the establishment of three separate, but equal, branches of government.  We profiled signatories on both the United States Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
