Living or Dead: Three Greatest Americans of All-Time?

1. George Washington...who led rag tag group of rebels to biggest upset of all time. Fist ever President.

2. Thomas Jefferson...wrote the Declaration of Independence and basically shaped the Constitution as we know it.

3. Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt...has his face on a mountain, rode a horse and coolest New Yorker ever. Did some other stuff too
