The Founding Fathers of the United States are remembered for many things, not the least of these are their writings and speeches. Many quotes seen commonly are left nameless or are even misattributed. We have painstakingly researched not only the author of each quote but the date and related background information. Currently, the app has over 300 quotes; we have an update almost ready adding another 50 and making minor corrections.
For more interesting Founding Fathers Quotations, please see Mark’s Quotes.
Read and study quotes by:
- Benjamin Franklin
- George Washington
- John Adams (and the Founding Mother Abigail!)
- Thomas Jefferson
- Alexander Hamilton
- James Madison
- John Jay
- Patrick Henry
- Thomas Paine
- Samuel Adams
- And many more!
Why is this app different from other quote apps?
Most quote apps out there are simply flashcard apps with little or no information or interactivity. This is fine for reading, but for those with a genuine interest in the founding era of the Republic, our app contains context and date information. One of the reasons we created this app was because so many wonderful quotes found on the internet and other apps are misattributed or–perhaps worse–left unnamed or undated.
We have researched each of the quotes found in the app and have done our best to make sure the quote and the information is accurate. (of course PLEASE let us know if you spot any errors!)
Also ours isn’t simply a list of quotes in a flashcard format. We have included bios of the major players, a search function to quickly find any keyword, an interactive quiz, a way to email a quote to a friend, and a favorites feature.
We sincerely want to make this a useful app for lovers of American history–if you have ANY suggestions or corrections, please email us or give us a call.
