Summary
Ellis focuses on six discrete moments exemplifying crucial issues facing the new nation: Burr and Hamilton's duel, and what may really have happened; Hamilton, Jefferson, and Madison's secret dinner, during which the seat of the permanent capital was determined in exchange for passage of Hamilton's financial plan; Franklin's petition to end the "peculiar institution" of slavery--and Madison's efforts to quash it; Washington's Farewell Address, announcing his retirement from public office and offering his country some final advice; Adam's difficult term as Washington's successor and his alleged scheme to pass the presidency on to his son; and finally, Adams and Jefferson's renewed correspondence at the end of their lives, in which they compared their different views of the Revolution and its legacy
