The Founding Fathers of the United States were a group of American revolutionary leaders who united the Thirteen Colonies, led the war for independence from Great Britain, and built a frame of government for the United States during the later decades of the 18th century.

Most historians agree on a select set of "greats" as the founding fathers, those being George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton.
