Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book was also published under the title American Revolutionaries in the Making in 1965.

Here is a vivid picture of late eighteenth-century Virginia's keen and often hot-tempered local politics. Sydnor has filled his book with the lively details of campaign practices, the drama of election day, the workings of the county oligarchies, and the practical politics of that training school for statesmen, the Virginia House of Burgesses.
