About the Book:
What if the key to understanding our present could be found in a more thorough understanding of our past? The American Cornerstones series helps readers gain perspective on today’s issues by helping them better understand their history. Jeff’s unique ability to look at history and then decode what is relevant, interesting and useful enables him to provide his readers with an approachable, multifaceted means to understand the issues that faced our nation then, and today. In his first book of the series, Jeff explores the role of the federal government by taking his readers back to the genesis of the issue in post-Revolutionary War America, giving them a glimpse of the actions and ideas of the men who started that debate - George Washington, Andrew Jackson and Thomas Jefferson.
