In reply to comment: Roger Sherman was the BEST! (see in situ)

Damn Straight...

My Grandma would always joke about how Thomas Jefferson owed Roger a large sum of gold over some tobacco plantation. Sherman and Jefferson were the best of friends and although Sherman isn't nearly as well known as his fellow patriot Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson and many other founders thought very highly of Roger. Not only did he sign the Declaration of Independence but he was one of only five men to actually draft the document. He was also famous for what became to be known as The Great Compromise. If you look at the famous painting of the signing of the Constitution he's actually smack dab in the middle.

"That is Mr. Sherman, of Connecticut, a man who never said a foolish thing in his life" - Thomas Jefferson
