Top Ten Founding Fathers of the United States

The Top Ten

1 Alexander Hamilton Alexander Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton is my favorite Founding Father and I wish he would have been president. I wish Adams and Jefferson were never president. I wish he would have been president. He would have been the third or fifth. But no. Jefferson took the presidency. I hate Jefferson. He was also the Hero of the battles of Trenton, and Yorktown. Oh. And by the way, THE TWO DOLLAR BILL HAS JEFFERSON ON IT, SO IT IS BAD LUCK. YHE TEN DOLLAR BILL HAS HAMILON ON IT. THE TEN DOLLAR BILL IS GOOD LUCK. So be quiet and I also hate you so much Greendayfan21.

2 George Washington George Washington George Washington was the first President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

Puppytart, wait... you don't like Founding Father, first president of the United States of America... because his chin looks weird? Correct me if I'm wrong but that sounds like a terrible reason.

His chin looks like a deformed sideways egg I don't like George Washington - Puppytart

3 James Madison James Madison James Madison, Jr. was a political theorist, American statesman, and served as the fourth President of the United States.

While not the most morally sound person, James (nicknamed Little Jemmy) accomplished a ton.

-He wrote the Bill of Rights
-He's the Father of the Constitution
-He was the fourth president (the War of 1812 was bad but he tried his best)
-He implemented the 2nd national bank (Hamilton's ghost approved)
-He married Dolley Payne Todd, who brought us ice cream

And he probably did a lot more, but those are just off the top of my head. He was short, sickly, rather apathetic at times, but cared for his country and ultimately does not deserve to be forgotten (nor do the lives of the slaves who were forced to work on his plantation of Montpelier).

Father of the Constitution

More influential to the founding of Burr for sure. A musical has taken over history.

I don't know why he's on this list because he's not a founding father, but I can kinda relate to him (besides killing his best friend)
