Revolutionary Characters: What Made the Founders Different

from the manufacturer

In this brilliantly illuminating group portrait of the men who came to be known as the Founding Fathers, the incomparable Gordon Wood has written a book that seriously asks, What made these men greatand shows us, among many other things, just how much character did in fact matter. The life of eachWashington, Adams, Jefferson, Franklin, Hamilton, Madison, Paineis presented individually as well as collectively, but the thread that binds these portraits together is the idea of character as a lived reality. They were members of the first generation in history that was self-consciously self-mademen who understood that the arc of lives, as of nations, is one of moral progress.
