United States History
George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson

EDIT: Whited out the words Republican, Democrat, etc since I had no idea what I was writing when I drew this. XD

Dammit, I spelled 'affiliated' wrong. ADD AN IMAGINARY I IN THERE, WILL YOU?

I'm not sure how many people will get this, but this is something I doodled while writing a history essay. My history teacher laughed at it, so I figured it's nice enough to put up here.

Erin, this might be a trip down memory lane in eighth grade homeroom. xD If you guys studied this during US/American History, hopefully this will induce some laughs. If not, well, I guess I have to try harder.

If you don't understand, basically Federalists and Democratic-Republicans HATED each others' guts. And Hamilton and Jefferson represented those groups respectively. Also, Jefferson believed in following the Constitution strictly, so anything that is 'unconstitutional' should be void and illegal. Hamilton, needless to say, follows the Constitution loosely and doesn't really go by it word by word. So if anything is unconstitutional by Jefferson's standards, he doesn't give a shit.

Oh yeah, Hamilton was short compared to these guys, if you hadn't noticed. Damn those 6' and over people.

Don't worry Alex! I'm short too! I'm even shorter than you are! But I'm still taller than my mom, so she's really short!

Oh so charming, great work and I like the dialouge...poor Hamilton! I had no clue he was short, of course Jefferson would take advantage of that fact haha. Hope you keep drawing more historical-inspired art, they are great!

Oh man, I hadn't checked my messages in a while. Thanks for the compliment! This was just spur-of-the-moment when I was in history class. I don't forsee myself drawing any more historical-inspired stuff, but I'm glad people are enjoying this!

I like it. I love pitying George Washington after his "Please don't form political parties" advice and what happens about five years later? Yeah. I like it.

Although I would equate the Federalists more towards modern-day Democrats and Jeffersonians to modern-day Republicans. To the best of our abilities, seeing as how incredibly much parties have changed. Federalists were pro-big government (as Democrats are today) and Jeffersonians were pro-big state government (as Republicans are). But maybe I'm completely wrong and am just making myself look like an idiot. :XD:

Washington must be mad at what Hamilton and Jefferson had done. :I

To be honest, I just found that online somewhere but never looked to validate it. So you could be right and I'm just scribbling down words that don't make sense lol. I plan to white those words out so that way people won't get confused. :XD:

He's got to be rolling in his grave for all the stuff we've done that he warned against. Oh, Washington, you didn't want your face on any currency? Oops....


Lol. Sounds good. :XD: Maybe I'm just biased because I adore Jefferson and for all intents and purposes I associate myself with the Republican party (although I am more Libertarian than anything but whatev) and I want to be close to Jefferson. :XD:

Oh Teej, you are such a passive aggressive butt. <3

This is hilarious!!

But just a short note....Jefferson was much closer to today's modern republican party whereas Hamilton would be associated with the left of center because of his push for a strong central government. After the Revolution of 1800's when Federalist lost their power and Jefferson became president the party platform of the federalist was actually absorbed by the Democratic-Republicans....

Um...yeah...


THIS IS LOLS THOUGH!

Seriously I lol at the fact that there are beginning to be like more Independent voters than actual party voters now, although now Independent is like its own party now. Seriously WTF STOP WITH THE PARTIES *SOB* Just choose who you think is good for the country and be &#*! done with it.

I guess that's because morons don't like deciding things and want decisions made for them |:<

Oh I know, but that's politics. :/

Oh I always did a lot of research on Lincoln, but for some reason I never remember much about him, besides being the first president assassinated, the 16th president of the US, and being the tallest president. /lol fail Oh and he lived in a log cabin and was fond of a top hat and had a good sense of humor.

I just learned about the XYZ affair and all of the good stuff about the Alien and Sedition Acts.

I remember he rarely/never smiled and was careful not to speak out against slavery too strongly during his election but held that eventually the US would become entirely pro- or anti-slavery, because he considered slavery to be one of those issues that can't really be compromised.
Plus after they won the war he walked through the Southern capital and a black man removed his hat and bowed to him, upon which he returned the gesture.
*shot due to the uselessness of that last fact*

I had the Gettysburg Address memorized for a short period of time. *shot*
