The Feuds of the Founding Fathers (and How They Shaped the Nation)

Written by Anne Quirk, Illustrated by Elizabeth Baddeley

The Revolutionary War was full of bloody battles and broken treaties, but it wasn’t just about the colonies fighting the crown. In the 18th century, it seemed that everyone was at war with each other— including the very people who were supposedly leading us on a path to independence! Don’t miss out on a ringside seat for these fascinating bouts!

Very interesting stories told in an age-appropriate engaging way about people who we hear about over and over again in history. This book shows us a side of very famous men that we may not be aware of, and helps them to become more than historical figures but people with ideas, passions, mistakes and problems. Students who enjoy history, biographies, or short stories will want to read this book. At 118 pages this would make a fun read aloud over several days for classes studying American history.
