America's Founders Series

The elegant prose of America's Revolutionary generation is found in the "America's Founders Biographical Series" by US Constitution historian John P. Kaminski, who adds dimension to the historic dramas of revolution and nation-making. Unlike traditional biographies, the chapbooks in this series emphasize the character, mannerisms, and physical appearance of the subjects as they were known to their contemporaries. In a unique way, the illuminating vignettes and "behind-the-curtain" glimpses of both well-known and obscure events provide a new perspective on the Founding generation.
