…..They Started a Revolution?

"As we commence celebrating July 4th with the time-honored traditions of beer, block parties and cookouts, it's fun to imagine a cookout where the Founding Fathers gathered around a grill discussing the details of the Declaration of Independence. Did George Washington prefer dogs or burgers? Was Benjamin Franklin a ketchup or mustard guy? And why did they all avoid drinking water?

The Founding Fathers did not "gather around a grill," as many Americans now do on Independence Day. They did, though, enjoy many foods and drinks still beloved today, as well as a few that might be declined if passed around at cocktail hour…."
