This week on Hashtag History, we are discussing Gouverneur Morris who - in addition to being the Forgotten Founding Father - was also maybe the weirdest, wildest, and (dare I say it?) freakiest Founding Father of them all. This guy liked to have sex in public (one of those public places being the Louvre), he had a peg leg which was maybe from a carriage accident but also maybe from when he jumped from a balcony to escape from a mistress’ husband, he got married for the first time when he was 57 years old to his housekeeper (who had previously been accused of killing her newborn baby), AND he would eventually die when he attempted to perform surgery on his own penis by using a whale bone to unblock his urethra...but would end up giving himself a fatal injury.
