"Cerami spins a good historical tale." --Kirkus Reviews

Seven years after the revolution, America was in crisis. The government didn't work, but the citizens didn't care--or were in a state of rebellion. Then two unknown men, Hamilton and Madison (unknown especially compared to the revered Founding Fathers), envisioned a plan that no one else thought could happen: a truly United States.

Against all odds, these men maneuvered and strategized to get the right men to agree on the right ideas. The result: the most brilliant political document ever, and a powerful United States.

From New York Times bestselling author Charles Cerami, this gripping tale of young men founding a nation will captivate both history buffs and those who just love a great story.

    Clearly an American Adventure

    A book that must be read by all Americans. I felt that it gave a very clear understanding of the challenge that these early Americans had to deal with when trying to write the constitution of the United States and some of the issues of the day. We need to have a better understanding of what our early American farthers had planned for this great nation. This book is a great starting place for any American who may want to get a better understanding of the early history of the United States.

    Original Documentation Missing

    Charles Cerami's book is a charming read, but it lacks original documentation. Mr. Cerami lives in Washington D C and I expected he would have gotten his documentation from NARA, the Library of Congress, The Library of Virginia, Virginia State Archives University of Virginia and New York State Archives. I wish more authors of American History would use original documents
