Wonder Woman, the origin story of the iconic superwoman, is DC’s long-awaited comeback after their disastrous 2016 films. Batman vs. Superman was so brooding and uninspiring that it averaged a 28% on Rotten Tomatoes. Suicide Squad, the pathetically bad result of endless reworks, earned a mere 25% rating.

Something about the frilly dress shirts and the bullheaded men who fought for liberty, justice, and independence interests me endlessly. In recent years, though historical dramas have been on the rise, the Founding Fathers have not received very much attention. In a search…
