Dunn (humanities, Williams College) provides portraits of George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams (who as an ambitious young man longed to discover "Some thing that will surprise the World"), Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison by presenting collections of the letters and other documents written over the course of their public lives. The goal is to show that the Founding Fathers were "thinking revolutionaries."
