Why Roger Sherman is my avatar.
He was a common man, a farmer and shoemaker, who rose to become a leader in the formation of the United States of America. He was the only man to have signed all four of our founding documents. Most importantly, he brokered the Great Compromise between the large and small states that gave us the two distinct chambers of congress.
Without this compromise, the Constitutional Convention would have failed and the country we have today would not exist.
