The book that got me first interested in this topic was Miracle at Philadelphia. The author after skillfully painting the background of the Federal Convention, relates the drama of the convention and highlights the personalities of those we call The Founders or Framers. If you haven't yet taken the plunge into the 18th century, this would be a great place to start.

Well, I've added that one to my wish list---it sounds great. I have so many books on my shelves about the founders that I am anxious to read. I read Decision in Philadelphia and I enjoyed it very much. And I have such a stack to read---1776, Revolutionary Characters, Washington's Spies and many more!

Actually coloradoreader, I forgot about this group but would like to revive it. I have heard so much talk lately, mainly from so-called progressives about how irrelevant is the past that I would like to revive discussions about this.

I have the same problem - so many books and so little time. I wish that I could read faster but I suppose that that would take away the enjoyment.
