James Wilson

Bob Gleason as James WilsonPortrayed by Bob Gleason

Bob Gleason’s James Wilson is a man deemed the most under-rated Founding Father by American Heritage Magazine, a man long overdue for a come-back, and an example of what this country was about. Gleason invites you to learn about a man who came to America with nothing, a man who became a Supreme Court Justice by dint of his hard work. Gleason insists that you discover the real James Wilson, who is nothing like the weak-kneed toady made famous in the musical 1776. Instead, Gleason shows us a man of impressive intellect who lobbied for the Constitution after it was adopted, but opposed the Bill of Rights because he considered these Rights already included in the Constitution.
