Over the recent years our founding fathers of the USA come under the handling of the writings of revisionist of American history. One who has received the worst of the revisionism has been Ben Franklin who went from a grandfatherly type of inventive genius to as a degenerate evil mastermind. The one who has withstood the test of time is John Adams. He was seen in the beginning as a patriot but not one that was well liked. Here is a clip from one of the best musicals ever produced, 1776, that shows off Mr. Adams personality and patriotism. The part is well played by William Daniels and better known as Mr. Feeney from the TV show "Boy Meets World."
