1734 - 1806

— Patriot - Businessman - Founding Father —

Known as the "Financier of the American Revolution," Robert Morris was regarded by many as second in importance to General George Washington in winning the War for Independence. He gave Washington the decisive support needed to win battles from Trenton to Yorktown. Morris signed the Declaration of Independence (1776), the Articles of Confederation (1778), and the United States Constitution (1787). Among his many accomplishments, Morris established the Navy and founded the Bank of North America. From 1791 to 1798 he owned historic Summerseat and nearly succeeded in establishing this property as the Capital of the United States.
