DISCLAIMER: Here at World Future Fund, we are not making any definitive claims about the founding fathers. And by sharing articles we are not saying we definitively agree with these articles.
We are simply sharing documentary material that may be of interest to our readers.
Some of the sources we list below raise interesting questions about the founding fathers and the American Revolution.
The practice of slavery and genocide dramatically increased after the colonists seceded from Britain. Why did this happen?
See the links below for more information.
