Description-
  • 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 itself—the courses, the wines, the nature of the conversation—and the rapid results that followed.

About the Author-
  • Charles A. Cerami is the author of three popular histories, including the New York Times extended bestseller Jefferson's Great Gamble. His articles have been published in Atlantic Monthly, Playboy, New York Times, and Foreign Policy. He lives in Washington D. C.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine In the wake of the American Revolution, the United States, collectively and individually, had acquired a sizable debt to numerous foreign governments. Questions of how to deal with the debt, as well as foreign policy and the location of the national government, led to a dispute between Thomas Jefferson and James Madison on one side and Alexander Hamilton on the other. To resolve these differences, Jefferson arranged a dinner between the three, during which they worked out solutions. William Dufris narrates this detailed historical work with ease. With his expressive and clear delivery, he sounds more like a storyteller recalling an intricate story than someone who is reading a text. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
  • Publishers Weekly "Cerami presents a fast-paced narrative of an event well-known but never told so brightly..."
