In Washington, award-winning author Fergus M. Bordewich turns his eye to the backroom deal making and shifting alliances among our Founding Fathers and in so doing pulls back the curtain on the lives of the slaves who actually built the city.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes.. Byt be aware the author tends to get into other side stories which are a bit long and not related. Overall it was fascinating to learn about how it transpired and almostnever vhappened
