Christine | 710 comments I love the Hamilton musical!! Please confirm Washington: A Life for MPG American Revolution. (I read Chernow's Hamilton biography during the summer challenge and enjoyed it, so I am eager to read his Washington biography as well.)

Sorry I can't approve. I'm keeping to MPG = American Revolution.
Hope you can use the book elsewhere in the challenge!

Aprilleigh (aprilleighlauer) | 1046 comments Which options did you approve Duel with the Devil for?

MPG Biography is present, and his name is listed in the Goodreads metadata, but unless you specifically intended the historical novel for option B to be fictional (non-fiction novels exist, although not to purists), that seems like an option that doesn't require hoping the MPG is still present when someone reviews it (and you never specifically stated which option it was approved for).

Duel with the Devil fits option A since it is non-fiction with "biography" as a MPG. The book is a history of the relationship between Alexander Hamilton and the man who killed him, Aaron Burr.

Good enough for me, thanks!

The book was really well done, btw, if anyone else is interested. It kept my attention as well or better than In Cold Blood, and he provided extensive footnotes and citations for his sources. Outstanding research.
