Can you name those famous fellas in white wigs who founded our nation? As you know, in 1776, many very important political leaders signed the Declaration of Independence, separating the American colonies from the rule of Great Britain.

Though there were 55 delegates present at the signing of the Declaration of Independence, including many different politicians, soldiers and statesmen who helped make the United States of America a sovereign nation, there are seven key figures that stand out historically.

Find out how much you know about these big wigs in our founding fathers quiz.

    You made it seem, on the question about John Jay, that he was also president of the Continental Congress from 1789-1795, but the Constitution had been established by then and there was no Continental Congress.

    Why don’t we ever celebrate the signing date for the Bill of Rights like we do for the signing dates of the Declaration of Independence (The Fourth of July) and the US Constitution (Constitution Day)? The Bill of Rights is just as important as the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution, because it gives Citizens in the USA important rights and freedoms like Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, and the Right to Free Trial. So we should have a holiday for the signing date of the Bill of Rights to celebrate its importance to our country.
