American Creation: Triumphs and Tragedies in the Founding of the Republic

Joseph J. Ellis


National Bestseller

Acclaimed historian Joseph J. Ellis brings his unprecedented skills to this riveting account of the early years of the Republic.

The final area of the eighteenth century is still the main politically inventive period in American heritage, whilst a devoted team of fellows undertook a daring scan in political beliefs. It used to be a time of either triumphs and tragedies—all of which contributed to the shaping of our burgeoning country. Ellis casts an incisive eye at the slow speed of the yankee Revolution and the contributions of such luminaries as Washington, Jefferson, and Madison, and brilliantly analyzes the disasters of the founders to appropriately remedy the issues of slavery and the remedy of local americans. With obtainable prose and gorgeous eloquence, Ellis delineates in American Creation an period of incorrect greatness, at a time while figuring out our origins is extra vital than ever.
