Founders by Candlelight

Here's a picture my husband shot last night of Washington's cabinet, gathered around a tavern table, reviewing a copy of the Constitution by candlelight. From left: Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington. I'm creating a little vignette with them and am adding chairs, a pewter tankard, and a lusty wench.
