The Founding Fathers

(click to enlarge)
This Fourth of July, I would like to honor a forgotten founding father. Inspired by the Iroquois Constitution, Benjamin Franklin took this model of governing to the Constitutional Convention. Ideas like the Bill of Rights, a system of checks and balances with 3 branches of government, and "We the People" were influenced by the wisdom of the native peoples. In October 1988, Congress passed Concurrent Resolution 331 to recognize the influence of the Iroquois Constitution upon the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. Happy Birthday USA!
