With America’s founding principles being debated today as never before, Russell Shorto examines the lives of six people who lived in the era in which those principles were forged and weaves them into a seamless narrative that casts fresh light on the range of experience in America on the cusp of revolution. While some of the protagonists play major roles, others struggle no less valiantly. Through these lives we understand that the Revolution was, indeed, fought over the meaning of individual freedom.
