Summary
Villain of the revolution or victim of history? Generations have been told that Aaron Burr was a betrayer of Alexander Hamilton, of his country, of those who had nobler ideas. But in this biography, Nancy Isenberg resurrects the Burr that time forgot: a loyal patriot, brilliant lawyer, and progressive Enlightenment intellectual who had the tremendous misfortune to make powerful enemies whose efforts ultimately dammed his legacy. Exposing the gritty reality of 18th-century America and its resemblance to our own time, Fallen Founder offers an often surprising view of Burr and his era
Summary
Challenges popular beliefs about the Revolutionary era figure, revealing how Alexander Hamilton subverted Burr's career through a slanderous letter-writing campaign, in a portrait that presents evidence of Burr's political talents and dedicated patriotism
