     Can anyone name the three founding fathers that later became presidents who died on July 4th? and for extra credit can you name the only president ever to be born on july 4th? 

    Please, lets have some fun with this and dont google the anwsers!

     

     

    At the end of your rope                                                                                                     

    Hanging by a thread

    He'd give anything for this to just go away

    This grip is only so strong

     

    I try to hold on tightly

    But it's all slipping through my fingers

    In a fleeting moment 

    Aspirations bled dry

    Eyes that once beamed with hope now only stare in remorse.

    I'm going to make a vaguely educated guess. I think I actually came across this on the humor site  cracked.com once

     

    Madison, Jefferson, Adams?

    [/QUOTE]

    Madison is wrong but Jefferson and adams is right. You are close though on the other one his last name does begin with an M.. care to give the extra credit question a try?

    Well, there's the learned John Marshall but that's a guess based on the fact that no other Ms are occurring to me this second.

     



    I suppose Monroe mightcount, though he definitely didn't have as big of a role in the founding as the 'big 7'.... 

     

    [/QUOTE]

    Monroe is right. Even though he didnt have a huge role as a founding father he still is technically considered a Founding father. 

    Now, have you though of anyone for the extra credit question?? I'll give you a bit of a hint, 1872 was the year he was born on the 4th of july.

    No. I feel like the cracked article I read may have mentioned Woodrow Wilson, but if that's right it's not me getting it because I knew. No idea at all.

    If I remember correctly it is Coolidge...though I would have to dig through my files for the paper I wrote last year..but I am fairly certain his birthday was on the 4th.

    Andie..wishing you a happy 4th as well. Hope you get to do something fun over the holiday weekend. We've already started. We checked out the festivities on our town common and had a bite to eat...but it's too hot out. Our neighbors tell us that we can see the fireworks from our front yard..so that's what we'll do later. Otherwise..I am catching up on a little website management work..no rest for the weary..lol

    Re: Happy Independence Day Eve!!!

    Speaking of silent Cal:

    "About the Declaration there is a finality that is exceedingly restful. It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have had new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning can not be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction can not lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers."

    skeeter,

    Tom Cruise? As in "Born on the 4th of July" Tom Cruise?

    Happy to see your overall sense of humor is well intact.

    Hope you and yours are staying cool, hydrated and protected from the sun.

    And no, this is not your "mom" talking. Just another forum poster who is particularly health conscious.

     

                                                                



    Beer hydrates, right? I've been taking WDYWN advice to have another beer...all day long.
