Ben Franklin

The American Revolution has been a long thought out and hectic time in our history. I served in the Second Continental Congress. I also help draft the Declaration of Independence in 1776. I also negotiated the 1783 Treaty of Paris that ended the Revolutionary war. In 1787, I was delegate to the convention that produced the U.S. Constitution.

George Washington

In June 1775, Congress ordered me to take command of the Continental Army besieging the British in Boston. However being a little inexperienced I proved to be capable and resilient leader for the American Military forces during the war. We lost many battles but I developed a winning strategy that included signal victories at the Battle of Trenton in 1776 and Yorktown in 1781.
