American Heroes: Profiles of Men and Women Who Shaped Early America Edmund S. Morgan Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
"A wise, humane and beautifully written book." —Bret Stephens, Wall Street Journal
From the best-selling author of Benjamin Franklin comes this remarkable work that will help redefine our notion of American heroism. Americans have long been obsessed with their heroes, but the men and women dramatically portrayed here are not celebrated for the typical banal reasons contained in Founding Fathers hagiography. Effortlessly challenging those who persist in revering the American history status quo and its tropes and falsehoods, Morgan, now ninety-three, continues to believe that the past is just not the way it seems.
