From noted historian Bruce Chadwickacclaimed as "a writer incapable of dull storytelling"Triumvirate is the dramatic story of the uniting of a nation and the unlikely alliance at the heart of it all.
When the smoke cleared from Revolutionary War battlefields, independent-minded Americans turned against each other.
Strong individuals with wildly different personalities, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay joined forces to convince wary Americans and thirteen headstrong states to unite as one. Together they wrote the startlingly original Federalist Papers not as an exercise in governmental philosophy, but instead aimed at overcoming the common man's fears. Their relentless efforts laid the groundwork for ratifying the Constitution against rampant opposition.
United by an intense love for their emerging nation, Hamilton, Madison, and Jay forged its legacy in pen and ink.
"Dr. Chadwick tells an exciting story. His analysis will provoke further debate about this momentous period in American history."
Dr. Paul Clemens, the Chairman of the Rutgers University Department of History
