Joseph J. Ellis calls the 1790s the most important decade in the nation’s history, involved a unique group of people – John Adams, Aaron Burr, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and George Washington – in the formation of a new republic, the United States of America.

Founding Brothers is a book that is still high up in the nonfiction bestseller lists across the county and is also the winner of the Pulitzer Prize. Ellis is writing what he does best: the found of a most historic nation, one that would not have come to realization if it weren’t for the people mentioned above, and the many meetings and discussions they had together. This is their story.

Originally published on December 3rd 2001.
