Founding Fathers: The Shaping of America tells the story of six formidable Americans—George Washington, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison—and how they persevered for 50 years of battle and bare-knuckle government to forge a nation. Known as the “Founding Fathers,” these six men, heavy lifters and shapers of American institutions, were examples of the best of the 18th century and morally dedicated to the creation of a free country.

 A fully illustrated 64–page book with 15 removable facsimile documents brings the era and events to life as never before. Removable documents include:

Thomas Jefferson’s first draft of the Declaration of Independence with scratch-outs and marginal comments by John Adams and Benjamin Franklin

A letter requesting a truce sent by the British General, Cornwallis, to Washington on October 17, 1781
