Amazing record of one of the most of THE events in modern history. Will the States stick together? They did for a while - one of the great democratic stories where decisions for the many are made by the few but with most of the few for wanting the best (they can get) for all. "real politic"

Phenomenally brilliant !! This is a must read for every man or woman who seem to magically know that they know everything that went on inside the heads of the Founding fathers but that is wishful thinking.
