Summary, etc.: A Southern historian challenges traditional interpretations of the Founding Fathers. "You think you know about the Founding Fathers, but did you know : The Founders were right-wingers by today's standards --- for gun rights, limited government, and religion in public life ; The Founders waged a War of Independence, not a revolution ; Is America a democracy? The Founders regarded the very idea of democratic government with scorn ; 'A nation of immigrants'? Most of the Founders were third- or fourth- generation Americans, not recent arrivals ; The Founders believed in States' rights, including the right to secede from the Union" --Cover, p1.
