Its time to meet America's most unappreciated and underestimated Founding Father-George Mason.
He was the theorist behind the American Revolution, and the Author of the Virginia Declaration of Rights-upon which Thomas Jefferson based the Declaration of Independence- as well as the chief architect of our Bill of Rights-our first 10 Amendments. In this revealing interview with "GEORGE MASON-THE MAN WHO GAVE US OUR BILL OF RIGHTS" author William Hyland- we'll find out just how important Mason was to helping to forge a nation built upon the idea that our rights are God-given- how Mason dealt with slavery-how he warned and prepared us for the dangerous growth of federal government- and what checks and balances Mason put in place to protect us from tyranny of the powerful few.. Visit our George Mason post at www.Facebook.com/1001Heroes to comment on the book and parts of this interview.
I highly recommend the book, which gives us the full impact of Mason's contributions set against the backdrop of the American Revolution. Amazon Link to Book: https://www.amazon.com/George-Mason-William-Hyland-Jr/dp/1621579263
