After the Revolution - Profiles of Early American Culture

Author(s): Joseph J. Ellis

America

Through portraits of four figures--Charles Willson Peale, Hugh Henry Brackenridge, William Dunlap, and Noah Webster--Joseph Ellis provides a unique perspective on the role of culture in post-Revolutionary America, both its high expectations and its frustrations.


Each life is fascinating in its own right, and each is used to brightly illuminate the historical context.
