About This Book
The founding fathers—reframed! Tired of reading about stiff, snooze-worthy revolutionary rebels? How about lackluster wars and mind-numbing laws? Not Your Father's Founders breathes life back into history with dynamic profiles of the politicos, wartime heroes, and lesser-known but equally important players who built this nation.Featuring hundreds of strange details and quirky stories, you'll love learning all about the thinkers, doers, and maintainers who spearheaded the rebellion. This re-read of American history will also keep you on your toes with entertaining facts, quotations, and revelations. For example, Samuel Adams' father was a merchant and brewer. Young Samuel worked for a while at the family brewery, but he did not have the head for it—or business in general.The birth of our nation was anything but dull—and Not Your Father's Founders pays proper tribute to our country's creators with entertaining tales you'll never forget.
