Roger Sherman is the only of the Founding Fathers who signed all four of America’s founding documents: Articles of Association (1774), Declaration of Independence (1776), Articles of Confederation (1778), and the United States Constitution (1787).

It is because of Sherman that we have two legislative bodies; it was his idea to create both the House and the Senate in order to resolve conflict between the big and small states.

Also a theologian, he wrote a personal creed which was adopted by his church:

“I believe that there is one only living and tru God, existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, the same in substance, equal in power and glory. That the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are a revelation from God, and a complete rule to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy Him.”

Adams in Patriotic Mode

“What do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations…This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.” John Adams
