John Witherspoon, he taught James Madison, Aaron Burr, and I don't know the names of the Senators, Congressmen, and Governors
*Ding Ding* Coooooooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrect. Congratulations Liberty.
For that you receive 3 points. I think I may have the number of Senators wrong actually, I believe it may have only been 20, with Burr possibly included so it wouldn't be worth as many as I thought.
ATFFL, I am not sure he did teach Patrick Henry though I may be wrong, upon reading a biography it says he was home-schooled so I don't know.
Scores are as follows:
Michael Z: 2
Mr. Fresh: 1
Lewis Trondheim: 1
