the founder of the founding fathers. He taught at what would become Princeton, and was its 6th president. Of his students, came 37 judges, 3 Supreme Court judges, 10 cabinet officers, 12 members of the Continental Congress, 28 senators, 49 congressmen, and 1 president-James Madison.
Witherspoon was the only active clergyman to sign the Declaration of Independence. He also served in Congress, himself.
So much for all of the Founders being atheists!
