During their own time, and even more so in ours, the Founding Fathers were perceived as demigods no more tainted by the stain of imperfect humanity than marble statues. Elliss penetrating analysis of six fascinating historical episodes, including Hamilton and Burrs deadly duel, Washingtons Farewell Address, and the correspondence between Jefferson and Adams, brings these statues to life and their visions into focus.
