ID : 1450   
« back to classes page
This summer, we will read four chapters (of six), each about 40 pages in length, from the Pulitzer Prize- winning book Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation by Joseph Ellis (Vintage Publisher, 2002, originally 2000). Each chapter focuses on a theme or event that engaged, but did not limit, one or more of the founders. The six individuals who act and interact in these chapters are: Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, John Adams, and Abigail Adams. (Obviously Abigail Adams is not a “brother” but her role, largely in the background, was essential.) Ellis is a masterful writer and historian; he illuminates the subtleties of the individuals and the circumstances as well as setting the wider context that obtained. Please join us.
