They Were NOT Stuffy Old Folks

Most people think the founding members of our country were old men. Don't you have a picture of some silver haired granny sewing the original stars and stripes on the American flag? Think again. Betsy Ross was only 24! Was the first American naval officer a grizzled old salt of the sea? No. John Paul Jones was just 28! Thomas Jefferson, the writer of our Declaration Of Independence, a mere 34! History is not the way you believe it to be. Check out the ages of the folks who's names you were forced to know in school right here.
