Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by 2016 Grateful American™ Book Prize winner Chris Stevenson, author of The Drum of Destiny: Gabriel Cooper & the Road to Revolution:
George Washington’s Indispensable Men: Alexander Hamilton, Tench Tilghman, and the Aides-De-Camp Who Helped Win American Independence by Arthur S. Lefkowitz. Great men rarely achieve that greatness alone, and the Father of our Country is no exception. This readable, fact-filled volume offers an account of 32 largely forgotten figures — including Samuel B. Webb, William Palfrey, and Richard Kidder Meade — who stood beside George Washington as history was being made during the Revolutionary War.
