Although he wasn't a leader of the entire country, Alexander Hamilton was my favorite founding father. My favorite story about him was when his mistress blackmailed him. She and her husband were going to expose him for an adulterer. He ended up paying them. It is quite interesting to look into the "back alley" stories of the leaders (and other people) of the Revolutionary war period. Ben Franklin was a sex addict who had a son who died from alcoholism. These little tidbits don't come up in the grade school texts. You may have to dig a little.
