Gerry


It's too bad that most know of Elbridge Gerry of Marblehead as the inventor of Gerrymandering.
~
He was a patriotic signer of the Declaration of Independence and refused to sign the Constitution because it did not contain a Bill of rights.
~
He was also the fifth Vice President of the United States, serving under James Madison.
~
Plus the Gerry 5 Club in Marblehead, of which I am a dues paying member and is by far the best local watering hole, is named after him.
