Founding Fathers Magical Girl AU
The year is 1776. The Kingdom of Great Britain has unleashed new tyranny on its American colonies. The Continental Congress is inept and the army is struggling to battles the mighty forces of His Majesty, King George III. But everything gets worse when it is discovered the Parliament has enlisted the dark forces to bring its colonies back under their thumb. The only way to beat this evil magic and make the new nation independent from monarchical rule is for six men to sign contracts and become Magical Girls.

I’m not reblogging the whole thing, because it’s long, but the beating of Charles Sumner is a horrific incidence in the history of the United States. It tends to get laughed at in the classroom, I’ve found, for reasons I can’t comprehend, but it is serious shit.
I found this wonderful book called The Conqueror; a dramatized biography of Alexander Hamilton (1916).
so far I have learnt that Hamilton and Eliza Jumel had a secret love affair.This is also the book that says Washington was Hamilton’s father and Jefferson makes Hamilton cry. It’s so terrible, I love it.

Sometimes I’ll feel really down and out, but then I remember whoever designed John Hancock’s grave had a good sense of humor
