In this book the author captures all the familiar figures and symbols of Philadelphia's rich eighteenth-century past as well as the drama of American history's greatest scenes, from the clandestine meetings of the Second Continental Congress to the drafting of the United States Constitution, to the final days of Philadelphia's prestigious role as the nation's capital.
This book captures both the passion and the deep learning that inform his extraordinary tours of the nation's most sacred shrines of liberty. Philadelphians and Americans alike will know more and feel better about themselves for reading it.--Michael Zuckerman, Professor, University of Pennsylvania
