Highly Recommended - Challenges our Mythological American History.
For history lovers for sure. Clearly written, well researched and an enlightened view of a vice-President who has been maligned far too long. History has too be objective and report both sides of an historical figure. Too often, person's go disgraced when they don't stand up and speak or write for themselves in the face of critics or foes. Perhaps we need to reassess without bias what a person's true contribution to our history is. Read it!

Really enjoyed this thoughtful, well-researched reconsideration
Really enjoyed this thoughtful, well-researched reconsideration of Burr. History has largely ignored the reasons why he was such a rising young star among the founding generation, in favor of unquestioning acceptance of his villainy. This book restores some well-deserved luster to his oft-maligned reputation. In the end, we are left with a more plausible human replete with myriad accomplishments and failures, in lieu of the villainous caricature of American mythology. Refreshing read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
