My daughter and I are watching “John Adams” if you got to meet one of the Founding Fathers who would you want to meet. What questions would you ask?
John Marshall The first chief supreme court justice of the United States
Being from the Boston area, I've always been fond of John Adams.
The HBO series was very well done.
Ben Franklin. I’d just let him talk. He’s a fascinating character.
He would hit on you.
Jefferson, to get his macaroni and cheese recipe
Jefferson or Franklin
George Washington or Ben Franklin
I'm gonna convince Hamilton to launch a coup against Adams and install himself as America's monarch.
I’d ask him about his thoughts on two party partisanship.
☝️ me too
T J. It is very hard to choose. Abigail Adams was an amazing woman. I’m a descendent of Martha Washington so I would love to meet her too.
Excellent program. Have you seen Turn?
You should check it out. It’s about Washing’s spies. The Culper Spy Ring.
James Madison he was very influential with the constitution and new most of the founding fathers really well. I would ask what the biggest mistake America has done and what is America needs to do to succeed as a nation and how to unite.
George Washington...just to shake his hand and say thanks.
Any of ‘em
TJ. I don’t really know what I’d ask, but I’d kinda like to pick his brain a bit about the importance (or not) of religion, especially one single religion, to the FFs. I know some of his thoughts because he wrote about it a little but I want to know more.
I’d want to meet Thomas Jefferson. I’d love to talk about books and what he found inspirational or thought provoking.
