Popular culture will often tell you to deify the Founding Fathers. Have you seen any statues or paintings depicting them recently? If not, check out the way George Washington is depicted in  The Apotheosis of Washington.

In the end, they were all normal men who did extraordinary things with their brief lives. Since America is America, we will continue to deify them till the day there is no longer a United States of America left. The more important question is which one would you like to party with? For me, it's probably Benjamin Franklin or Alexander Hamilton.
