's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: america-fuck-yeah, historyonics-american

** spoiler alert ** Brilliantly vivid and unbelieveably researched little snippets of American history that will make it come alive for you in ways you never thought possible.

You are treated to the Hamilton/ Burr duel, the dinner that changed the American landscape, Washington's grand and forward-thinking farewell address, the cantankerous and deeply sympathetic friendship/rivalry between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, so on and so forth.

epically small and rich in little bites.
