We hear all of the time about the "Founding Fathers," but who would be THE Founding Father? Take the "Who is Your Founding Father?" interview and evaluate each of four candidate’s life accomplishments and contributions to the new nation. Evaluate the importance of each "founder’s" contributions on a sliding scale of 1-10, 1 being least important and 10 being most important. Watch as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and Alexander Hamilton race according to how you judge their accomplishments and how much you make them pay for their mistakes. There are 25 questions. Whoever has the highest score after all questions are answered wins the race and becomes THE FOUNDING FATHER. You can then print out a certificate featuring your winner.
