Happy Birthday, Mr. Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln is definitely at the outer boundary of what might be considered the "founding era," but he nevertheless is worthy of mention on this day - his birthday.
For your reading pleasure, you may follow this link to read Mr. Lincoln's famous "Cooper Union Address," in which he speaks at length of the Founding Fathers and their views on slavery (especially with respect to the territories). It's a brilliant speech.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Lincoln!
