Good Morning, James,

The birth of our nation and what the founders went through is amazing.  David McCulloch's book about John Adams is a real eye opener.  The shenanagins in politics haven't changed much.  Philadelphia was not the healthiest place to be.

Hi James Dray - I thought the name sounded familier.  I am good with my American history.

That name is one that I associate with tools, I certainly did not know the history of this man.

A founding father of our nation... but one I'd bet most of us never heard of!

Hello James - like the comments you have received so far, I was not previously familiar with Mr. Ingersoll.  Thank you for letting us know of this man who signed the Constitution.

Jared sounds like a brilliant and dedicated man James Dray .  My how the pendulum has swung with much of the country voting for socialism in this last election.

An interesting man with an international view which he brought to work for America and Pennsylvania. I wonder what he would make of our current politics?

Hi James- there have been so many interesting people in our history and we know nothing about them.

It is interesting that Jared Ingersoll, who devoted many years to the foundation of our Nation, is such a small footnote in history. I have never heard of him before reading this post.
