Found in a Little Free Library in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Looks interesting. On this copy someone attempted to label the portraits on the front cover in pencil. Washington, Franklin, and Burr are all correct; Jefferson is labeled Hamilton; Hamilton is labeled Madison; and Adams and Madison aren't labeled at all.

The label in this book commemorates Whiteraven13, who was an avid history lover. I miss her.

This took me a very long time to finish. For some reason my mind kept wandering, meaning I had to go back and reread paragraphs multiple times before they stuck. And it's not that it was boring - just not especially engrossing. Each chapter can more or less stand on its own, covering different events: the Hamilton/Burr duel, the Jefferson/Adams friendship, etc. It was interesting to read about America's uncertain beginnings, and to be reminded that partisan politics have been entrenched since Washington stepped down, but it didn't go into enough depth for me to really get a lot out of it.
