Summary
Reexamines the lives of bona-fide American heroes such as George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, and reevaluates the legacies of religious figures such as Anne Hutchinson, whose trial for heresy and banishment riveted the colonies in 1637, and unknown martyrs such as Mary Easty and Giles Cory, executed for practicing witchcraft
Summary
Historian Edmund S. Morgan delivers 17 stirring essays about heroic Americans. John Winthrop's unpopular stand saves Massachusetts Bay Colony. William Penn's principles forge a Philadelphia miracle. George Washington's strategy stuns the British. And Anti-Federalist opposition fosters the Bill of Rights
