About This Quiz

If you have frequent dreams where you're sitting in Independence Hall discussing the details of a radical document you are involved in creating, then you may be a reincarnated founding father. Since we're now assuming that you feel some tangible connection to those who envisioned and fought for the pursuit of happiness, it's now a matter of deducing which iconic figure in US history you used to be.

If you're a bit of a mysterious figure, someone who keeps their private life to themselves, then perhaps you were once Thomas Jefferson. We'll be even more convinced if you find yourself continually exploring new ideas and innovations, and you love to grow all kinds of exotic plants in your garden. If you're also an incredible writer who possesses the ability to stir the heart of every American to this day, then that would pretty much seal the deal.

Maybe you're more gregarious, the kind of person who loves rubbing elbows at a party. If you have a fantastic ability to charm and persuade people, then perhaps you were Benjamin Franklin in a past life. If you stay in touch with a massive amount of people from all over the world and you are always willing to rebel against any injustice, we think that it might be true.

There were many others vital to the success of the founding of the nation. We the people are ready for you to find out who you once were.
