The Men Who Made America And the Way They Lived
Gorgeous book offers a penetrating
look at the private lives of the men who
ignited a revolutionary war and helped
create the modern world. When they
declared independence in 1776, they
changed the course of history. But these
patriots had private lives too. In this
breathtaking volume, historian Hugh
Howard and photographer Roger Straus
examine the everyday lives of the
Founders as revealed in their dwellings.
There are tales of friends and enemies,
murderous relatives, reluctant revolutionaries, adoring wives, and runaway servants.
The founding families are brought to life in the rituals of birth and death, the food
they ate, the medical practices endured etc.
