Quite literally, they founded the United States of America. They were the leaders of the American Revolution. They expressed people's frustration and resentment with British rule. They acted on that anger to declare independence and lead the country through eight years of war to achieve it. They wrote the constutution and persuaded people to accept and ratify it. They formed the first government under Washington and served in the first congresses. They wrote the Bill of Rights.
