Fun fact: There are four Johns in the entire strip.
HISTORY LESSON: The first Continental Congress was formed with the intent of expressing the grievances of the colonies to Parliament back in England and get them to make some changes. It was largely impacted by the events caused by the Sons of Liberty, Samuel Adams' band of revolutionaries, that led up to the revolution.
Peyton Randolph, who is the bald guy way up top, was elected president of the convention to oversee its proceedings, and though he was not intended to be a front-running speaker, John Adams remained particularly adamant about having his views heard and answered during the Congress.
And as a side note, the Rutledges were not actually twins - John and Edward Rutledge were in fact around ten years apart. But for the purpose of them attending the school at the same time it is obviously much cooler to make them annoying, identical twins who finish each others' sentences.
I have to agree... Dickinson's hair... why on Earth does it look fabulously silky...? *swoons* TWINS. You have exploited my weakness, Umi-sama! And here, I believed nothing could outbeat one Rutledge... when TWO took the cake! (*whydoyoumakeloyalistssosexyhnnnghhhh... joy*)
Ascots are pretty awesome. I love the little insights here. If I may be so bold as to ask a question, will there be any mention of Sally Hemings? I know that scandal didn't really break until his presidency but I'd love to see her in your comic.
