Description

In his lifetime, John Jay was the first chief justice of the Supreme Court, president of the Continental Congress, and governor of New York. But it was his role in keeping the Founding Fathers united as the day-to-day work of forming a government became more and more pressing that was to become his greatest feat. Supports history-social science standards requiring students to identify common themes in American art and thought as well as transcendentalism and individualism.
