Happy Birthday, John Jay!

Initially posted December 12, 2012

I realize many people have gotten excited that today is 12/12/12. What’s really worth noting, though, is that today is John Jay’s birthday. John Jay was born December 12, 1745. So, as one friend noted, today is his 267th birthday. John Jay was an important figure in the American Founding era. We’ll have plenty more to say about him on this blog.

If you’re curious, though, I have an article on Jay published in the volume The Forgotten Founders on Religion and Public Life, edited by Dreisbach, Hall, and Morison. Pick up your copy today!
