Founders Online is a free online tool commissioned by the U.S. National Archives and implemented by University of Virginia (U.Va.) Press that lets the public access the papers of six of America’s Founding Fathers: Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, James Madison, John Adams and Alexander Hamilton. Funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission of the National Archives, Founders Online grew out of 50 years of scholarly efforts and gives unique insight into some of the brightest minds of the Age of Enlightenment. The website provides searchable access to over 150,000 documents, a number that’s projected to grow to 175,000.
