Founding Fathers' Constitutional Celebration
What better occasion to celebrate in a big way than the signing of our nation's constitution? Two days before that fateful day in 1787, fifty-five delegates, among them Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison, went out for a wild night on the town. Apparently over one hundred bottles of wine were consumed, along with large quantities of whiskey, hard cider, and beer. Additionally, there was a great deal of reported damage to the bar they ventured to, including broken bottles, tables, and even chamber pots!
