Description: This is another founding father that I forgot to upload the other day so I will do that now. Here we will learn "how to draw John Jay", step by step. It's hard to believe that a man with two first names was a founding father but it's true. John Jay was not only one of the founding fathers of the United States, he was also a statesman, diplomat and of course a patriot. John Jay also helped mold the foreign policy for the United States and is even the one who signed the treaty of Paris, France. Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay wrote five of the 'Federalist Papers' to form centralized government in New York back in 1788. John Jay was born in New York City to a wealthy family who held positions as merchants and government officials so naturally he would follow in the footsteps of his other family members. His father was a trader specializing in furs, timber, wheat and other things. His mother had ten children but only seven grew to being adults. He tried to end slavery in 1777 and again in 1785 but both times he failed. Finally in 1799, he was successful which led to the emancipation act which he signed. The emancipation act freed all the slaves in New York before he died in 1829. No matter how you look at it, he was a great man, and will also have a place in the United States history. Have fun drawing John Jay folks, I will return once again.
