The Founding Fathers, as their title implies, shaped the ideals on which America was built. But who exactly were these guys? Here is an interesting collection of facts and minutiae surrounding the American Revolution and our forefathers – from those you’d expect (George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Ben Franklin) to those you may have never heard of, but you probably should (like George Wythe and Rufus King):Alexander Hamilton was the founder of the U.S. Mint and the U.S. Coast Guard. The naval communication book he wrote was still being used by America’s navy and Coast Guard through the Cuban Missile Crisis.Roger Sherman (of Connecticut) was one of only two Founding Fathers who signed the three bulwark documents of our republic: The Declaration of Independence, the Articles of the Confederation, and the Constitution. (The other such signer was Robert Morris of Pennsylvania.)By the time he was thirty, George Washington had had smallpox, pleurisy, dysentery, and malaria.Readers will be left with a greater appreciation of these leaders, and a deeper respect for these human beings who were just trying to accomplish the incredible: create the greatest nation in history.Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
