Web Video: I Made America
Kidnapped from the paaaast and brought to 2012 Chicago, and this is the story!

I Made America is a YouTube series that puts out new episodes weekly. It follows the adventures of American Founding Fathers John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, and George Washington.

The unfortunate sextet have been brought to the future by a political party who hope to use the Fathers to promote their agenda. They refuse, and as a result, are trapped in 21st century Chicago.

I Made America can be watched on their site, or on their YouTube channel.
