Founding Father Presentation
Most delegates were born in a wealthy family, first taught by their father or mother, later attended colleges and expanded their knowledge very well. For example, William Samuel Johnson was self-taught, but also studied in Yale and Harvard, he later became one of the president of United States. However, there were a few that were from a common family but eventually worked their way up, for instance, William Few from Maryland only had a little schooling and lived a poor life. But in the future, he became a prison inspector, part of the Provincial Congress of Georgia, and also became the judge for Georgia. This proves that the amount of money you have does not determine the strength and intelligence you have. Facts shown that a large amount of delegates are politicians, and lawyers.

George Washington and James Madison, two of most famous and well-known politicians and statesmen in the United States were both from Virginia. Little people knows that Washington was a plantation owner and a farmer before he became a soldier and, of course, a president.
