New Press (2009)
Founders is a daring attempt to recreate an honest history of our nation's founding by skipping over 19th century distortions and returning to primary sources from Revolutionary times. It's a sweeping narrative, starting with the beginnings of unrest in 1761 and ending with the ratification of the Bill of Rights 30 years later. To keep his rendition intimate, author Ray Raphael focuses on seven lead characters, not the usual cast, but a far more diverse lot including financier Robert Morris.
