Rivalry Meme by laureng2 Rivalry Meme by laureng2
Happy early Independence Day everyone! I'm going off with some relatives Thursday and Friday, so I had to post this now.

And now! A toast! To the rivalry that helped create one of the greatest nations in the world! Much love to Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton! And of course to all our Founding Fathers! They never gave up on the People, and defended our rights even when faced with the noose. :salute:

"It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. ... I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not." -John Adams

Hahaa oh this is so charming! I adore this, their little hair pieces, the masonic treasure and my darling Lafayette being the peacemaker :) I also like how they answer him in French & how they admire Washington-"Go George go!" Their counseling session was perfect too, is that Franklin? Oh it's great, you put so much information and details into this and your humor is spot on ;D

Thanks for the added quote, that meant a lot and inspired me as did your salutation to our Founders :clap:

Aw! Thank you so much! Yeah, I've been busy with other things and I just haven't been feeling very inspired lately. But I'm not giving up on them, just taking a break I guess :)

This is amazing! I freakin' love both of these guys so much! And they hated each other so much! I'm loving the hate, if that makes any sense!

Those two are fantastic, aren't they? I love all of your comics. They're so funny! Also, it's nice to know that I'm not the only US History geek out there.

(btw, Hamilton was blonde.)

XD Really? I'm flattered.
lol @ Jefferson's face biting comment. He's more vicious than I thought. You portray both of them really well.

This made me want to draw more historical stuff, since I haven't done that in a while. *puts on todo list* I look forward to more of your stoof!

And I look forward to your historical stuff! How does Jefferson's quote go? "Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain cool and unruffled under all circumstances."...except when confronting a Hamilton! lol
