Alexander Hamilton
Written by Ron Chernow
731 Pages + acknowledgments, bibliography and source notes

Ron Chernow, whom The New York Times has called "as elegant an architect of monumental histories as we've seen in decades,: vividly re-creates the whole sweep of Alexander Hamilton's turbulent life--his exotic, brutal upbringing; his titanic feuds with celebrated rivals; his pivotal role in defining the shape of the federal government; his shocking illicit romances; his enlightened abolitionism; and his famous death in a duel with Aaron Burr in July 1804. Drawing upon extensive, unparalleled research--including nearly fifty previously undiscovered essays highlighting Hamilton's fiery journalism as well as his revealed missives to colleagues and frights--this biography of the extraordinarily gifted founding father who galvanized, inspired, and scandalized the newborn nation is the work by which all others will be measured.

Betsy Ross and the Making of America
Written by Marla R. Miller
362 Pages + acknowledgments and source notes

Legend has it that as the American colonies hurtled towards independence, representatives of the Continental Congress, including George Washington, walked into Betsy Ross's Philadelphia upholstery shop and commissioned the first flag of the Revolutionary nation. Although this story has long made Betsy Ross one of America's most celebrated patriots, little had been known until now about the woman behind the flag. Drawing on new sources and bringing a fresh, keen eye to the fabled creator of "the first flag," Marla R. Miller thoroughly reconstructs the life behind the legend.
