Description
The editor of the Gouverneur Morris Papers: Diaries Project and the author of Envoy to the Terror: Gouverneur Morris and the French Revolution, Melanie Miller here provides an elegant, succinct account of the life of this lesser-known yet most engaging Founding Father. One of George Washington's "surrogate sons," Morris played a profound role in the success of the American Revolution and the creation of the Constitution, during which the New York delegate's lucid and passionate eloquence sparked lively debate, enthralling in Miller's telling. Miller also relates Morris's term as the American minister to France—a story of conspiracy to help the king escape, of friends imprisoned and murdered, of seized ships and complex problems that had no precedent in the young nation's history. Upon his return, Morris served a brief stint in the Senate before going on to secure the building of the Erie Canal and to direct the design of the Manhattan network of streets we know today.
