Founding Leaders: Birth Places

This week we talked about how everyone in the early years of the New World was either:

a. a native (that is, an Indian), 
b. an immigrant from another country, or 
c. a captive forced to live here.

As such, this conversation led to our speculation about the birth places of eight of our founding leaders: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, Aaron Burr, and Alexander Hamilton.

We took a poll: Where were these eight men born?
a. all eight were born in the U.S.
b. four or more were born in U.S.
c. three or less were born in the U.S.
d. none of the eight were born in the U.S.

In two weeks, we'll reveal our results.
Meanwhile, where do you stand on this question?
