The Faiths of Our Fathers: What America's Founders Really Believed / Edition 1by Alf J. Mapp Jr.
Pub. Date: 07/07/2005
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
The religious attitudes of the "Founding Fathers" were as varied as their political opinions, declares the author. Writing for the lay reader, he attempts to reconstruct, through their writings, the beliefs of Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, James Madison, George Washington, Patrick Henry, Alexander Hamilton, John Marshall, George Mason, John Adams, Charles Carroll, and Haym Salomon (these last two representing Catholics and Jews, respectively). A final chapter explores "What Most People Thought." Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR\
