WHO'S YOUR FOUNDING FATHER? One Mans Epic Quest to Uncover the First, True Declaration of Independence

by | Read by Jonathan Todd Ross

History • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Jonathan Todd Ross is the perfect narrator for Fleming's passionate popular history and travelogue about The Mecklenburg Declaration of 1775 and the author's quest to find out more about this document. In May 1775, a number of pesky Scots-Irish (mostly Presbyterian) men met in Charlotte, North Carolina, and wrote a Declaration of Independence from Great Britain. A copy of it was even sent to the Continental Congress in Philadelphia. Amazingly, much of the phrasing of the "MecDec" seems to have made it into the more commonly known Declaration attributed to Thomas Jefferson. Folks in North Carolina have known about the "MecDec" for centuries; the rest of the country--not so much. Ross's splendidly clear baritone suits the author's conversational work to a T.
