Summary
This definitive biography of the revolutionary era villain overturns every myth and image we have of him. The narrative of America's founding is filled with godlike geniuses--Franklin, Washington, Adams, Jefferson--versus the villainous Aaron Burr. Generations have been told Burr was a betrayer--of Hamilton, of his country, of those who had nobler ideas. All untrue. He did not turn on Hamilton; rather, the politically aggressive Hamilton was preoccupied with Burr and subverted Burr's career at every turn for more than a decade through outright lies and slanderous letters. In Fallen founder, Nancy Isenberg portrays the founders as they all really were and proves that Burr was no less a patriot and no less a principled thinker than those who debased him. He was an inspired politician who promoted decency at a moment when factionalism and ugly party politics were coalescing. He was a genuine hero of the Revolution, as much an Enlightenment figure as Jefferson, and a feminist generations ahead of his time
