In an appropriate posting, today we have a wax tableau of the forging of our Nation. Though, this scene seems to be of one specific event, it actually is of four of our founding fathers in a unspecific scene. The Committee of Five drew up the Declaration of Independence. They Were John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Robert R. Livingston, and Roger Sherman. But here we have John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and John Hancock. Lets see if we can figure out who is who.
Looks the most like John Adams. So lets say that this is Adams.
Thomas Jefferson. Since Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence, this must be him. So that leaves John Hancock in the back of the room.
