And they describe the vigorous movement to independence...Here, too, is a first-rate military history of the American Revolution, and the awesome achievement of George Washington... And here are the sharp ideological debates after independence, between the followers of Hamilton and Jefferson -- a political and spiritual conflict that would shape the American experience forever.Ó
