About this item

Why the American Revolution, of all the great revolutions, was the only enduring success. Through the Founders' own voices -- and in the homes they designed and built to embody the ideal of domestic happiness they fought to achieve -- we come to understand why the American Revolution, of all great revolutions, was the only enduring success. The Founders were vivid, energetic men, with sophisticated worldviews, and this magnificent reckoning of their successes draws liberally from their own eloquent writings on their actions and well-considered intentions. Richly illustrated with America's historical and architectural treasures, this volume also considers the houses the Founders built with such care and money to reflect their vision for the fledgling nation.
