Review: AMERICAN CREATION by Joseph J. Ellis

American CreationCanadian Bookworm reviewed American Creation: Triumphs and Tragedies at the Founding of the Republic by Joseph J. Ellis for the 2013 American Revolution Reading Challenge. Here’s an excerpt:

This book looks at U.S. history from the early days of the revolution to the Louisiana Purchase, ranging from 1775 to 1803, and analyzes six different component actions. First he has an overview of the founding overall, the bigger picture and the reasoning for covering the period he does here. Then each chapter looks at an event or time period, at who the different players were and what actions they took, even at what we know about what they were thinking from their papers and conversations.
