Courage may have been the front-runner for the founding fathers’ strengths, but their intellectual power reigns supreme as their greatest asset. The ability they had to think openly, freely and critically about topics such as freedom, life and politics becomes the founding fathers most prized possession and Britain’s worst adversary.

I would imagine that the idea of an independent American was not an easy idea for many to stand by. Many would have probably thought that it was an effort that was not worth the risks, that fighting the kingdom of Britain would bring too heavy a cost. But of course, there were those with enough courage to speak openly about their feelings on their country 's situation.

I originally forgot to consider the European power factor in his timing and urgency, and do agree it was a strong factor in his timing. I believe more influential were the internal factors of keeping the union bonded together and not polarizing the issue that was already so much a point of contention among the Union and border states.
