Happy Birthday To A Founding Father
On this day, January 9, 1745, an American Founding Father, Caleb Strong, delegate to the Constitutional Convention, is born.
Caleb Strong also helped draft his state of Massachusetts’ Constitution, served in the State House and Senate, served for two terms as its Governor, and was a U.S. Senator. Strong played a role in the passage of the 11th Amendment. As a citizen, Mr. Strong was a family man with nine children, was active in his church and “was a leading member of local missionary and Bible societies.”
