Click here for reviewer Bob Walch's take on The Intimate Lives of the Founding Fathers.

A true expert of the characters living during the Revolution, Thomas Fleming has written a number of books on this period of American history. In this one, he traces the lives of many of the politicians who created the very fabric of our country. He examines the love lives of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison, and some pretty sordid and salacious things come out.

Passionate love letters between George Washington and his friend's wife, Benjamin Franklin making time with a number of younger women, and Alexander Hamilton betraying his wife are all revealed.

The author marries history to the histrionics of our founding leaders. He brings a sense of the romance novel in the telling of these tales, and what you're left with are stories of passion, infidelity, and sex. This is better than any history book you've ever read.
