JohnJayScrambled1As we approach the Fourth of July, I thought that it would be appropriate to celebrate our Founding Fathers and selected figures from the Revolutionary War period the best way that I can — honoring them in the GeekDad Puzzle of the Week.

Below is a list of terms that, when properly unscrambled, make up the name of someone famous/infamous and relevant to the late 18th century…

Here is the list, complete with unscrambled figures from the 18th century:

  • Oh Sand Jam – John Adams
  • Kimbra Jenna Flinn – Benjamin Franklin
  • Dalmatian Heron Lex – Alexander Hamilton
  • Jess Off Heart Mon – Thomas Jefferson
  • Amid Mensa Jos – James Madison
  • See Wagon Girth Nog – George Washington
  • Low Film Daily – William Floyd
  • Caffeine Tights Rollo – Francis Lightfoot Lee
