Founding Fathers Forum Game: A republic, if you can keep it.

#814

Hamilton’s second inaugural was one of the great speeches in American history, one that every schoolboy learns to this day. He spoke at length about the new states that had recently been added and the potential of new lands and new technologies to build a continent-spanning empire.

Zachary Taylor, a Kentuckian and officer in the Indian Wars, joins Madison’s faction. (@Brooski plays Z. Taylor, a Liberal form Kentucky with 2M/0 and 0 votes.)

@Cuthbert is up again in the Round, where he may spend influence to make a speech, whip up support, and/or found/improve a newspaper.

Order for the Round is:
@Cuthbert
@Panzeh
@Ironsight
@Navaronegun
@Brooski

Once that is complete, we will bid for the last initiative, this time starting with Panzeh and ending with Cuthbert.

Polk is true to his nickname, the Napoleon of the Stump. He gives a rousing speech in his native Tennessee that gets reprinted in all the largest papers. (Polk rolls a 6, nailing it on the first attempt.)
