Summary
In this exciting audio production, prize-winning journalist and historian Jeffrey St. John simulates day-by-day reportage to make you a first-hand witness to the 1787-1788 political battle to ratify the U.S. Constitution. Discover how close both sides of the debate came to resorting to violence and rigged elections and witness Patrick Henry's challenge to a pistol duel at the Virginia convention. Observe the Constitution's sanction of slavery and the delegate revolts it produced, Massachusetts Governor John Hancock's secret deal to deliver his state in return for support of his candidacy for the presidency, and how the soft-voiced James Madison defeated America's greatest orator. Vastly entertaining, this book is both a popular history and an important contribution to the study of the founding of the American Republic
