St. Martin’s Press in January 2020: THE FOUNDING FORTUNES: HOW THE WEALTHY PAID FOR AND PROFITED FROM AMERICA’S REVOLUTION

Pre-publication praise:

“I thoroughly enjoyed it and certainly learned a lot …. A masterful job in showing the complexity of the interactions between Congress, the states, the wealthy merchants and the average citizens as they sought to provide support for the revolution.”    — Ph.D. in American history

“I was raised to think of the American Revolution as a rare moment in history in which neither “cherchez la femme” nor “follow the money” would get you to the truth.  Yet in The Founding Fortunes, following the money reveals a gritty reality that we can’t access any other way.  It evokes the sights, sounds and psychology of the era more vividly than a whole shelf of books about lofty ideals and governance.”    — leading financial reporter/editor
