Offers a re-creation of a dinner party held at the home of Thomas Jefferson during which Jefferson and his guests, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, developed compromises that helped heal the wounds of the early Republic and led to America's great expansion, in a volume that not only recalls the historic meeting, but also the dinner itself.
Soon after the new Constitution took effect and George Washington became president, the United States was in serious danger. A bitter political rivalry between two men who had once been allies and two surging issues that inflamed the nation led to grim talk of breaking up the Republic. Then, a single great evening, arguably the most important dinner party in American history, achieved the compromises that led to America's mighty expansion. Though often mentioned, that dinner has not been recognized as a milestone in the nation's history. This book will give life to host Thomas Jefferson and his two guests, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, as well as the dinner itselfâthe courses, the wines, the nature of the conversationâand the rapid results that followed.
