Too often, early American history focuses on the narratives of a few key men and how through sheer force of will, they founded America. These narratives assume men like George Washington and Benjamin Franklin existed in a vacuum. Freeman examines the lives of these men using gender as a lens, giving our Founding Fathers more depth and contextualizing their decisions and actions, rather than relying on the same myths that are oft repeated.
