Highly readable.

Did Thomas Jefferson run over his dog? I think the nicest thing he could bring himself to say about Jefferson was that he did actually found the University of Virginia.

Quotes Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Liked

“Washington, Franklin, Madison, Hamilton, Adams, and Jefferson had imagined the American experiment coming to all sorts of bad ends. They never imagined the Federal City overrun by frontiersmen who cared nothing for history and loved only cheap land and credit, whiskey, tobacco, guns, fast women, fast horses, and Jesus. Not necessarily in that order.”
Walter A. McDougall, Freedom Just Around the Corner: A New American History: 1585-1828
