Editorial Reviews

Margaret L. Coit
A fascinating story brilliantly told…
Saturday Review
Henry Steele Commager
The most readable of all accounts of the Philadelphia convention. Miss Bowen has been successful beyond any of the general historians…she has brought to the retelling both imagination and art.
Book Week
Allan Nebins
Our greatest peacetime story is here retold in terms that would delight the general reader while satisfying the critical scholar.
