Description
Arguing that Aaron Burr's legacy was thoroughly tarred by his political enemies, the author of Sex and Citizenship in Antebellum America here paints a portrait of a man who truly deserves to be reinstated as a Founding Father. Nancy Isenberg dismantles the biased public accounts that other historians have relied upon and holds up private descriptions of Burr as cultured, progressive, and well-liked. The Burr we meet here has his flaws, but he is a man of his time—a patriot, a feminist, and an Enlightenment figure on par with Jefferson.

"Isenberg's meticulous biography reveals a gifted lawyer, politician and orator who championed civility in government and even feminist ideals, in a political climate that bears a marked resemblance to our own."—Washington Post
