Book Description
In this landmark work of history, the National Book Award-winning author of American Sphinx explores how a group of greatly gifted but deeply flawed individuals - Hamilton, Burr, Jefferson, Franklin, Washington, Adams, and Madison - confronted the overwhelming challenges before them to set the course for our nation. The United States was more fragile hope than a reality in 1790. During the decade that followed, the Founding Fathers - reexamined here as Founding Brothers - combined the ideals of the Declaration of Independence with the content of the Constitution to create the practical workings of our government. Through an analysis of six fascinating episodes - Hamilton and Burr`s deadly duel, Washington`s precedent-settling Farewell Address, Adam`s administration and political partnership with his wife, the debate about where to place the capital, Franklin`s attempt to force Congress to confront the issue of slavery and Madison`s attempts to block him, and Jefferson and Adams` famous correspondence - Founding Brothers brings to life the vital issues and personalities from the most important decade in our nation`s history.
