(The First Fourteen American Presidents Before Washington)'
The Hardcover, Paperback and Digital (kindle) editions are Available for PURCHASE
This book weaves a rich tapestry that provides previously unknown context to the initial founding of the United States of America. Many history books are written as dry, pedantic lists of dates and places with little attempt to breathe life into the stories. In contrast, THE FIRST AMERICAN REPUBLIC: 1774-1789 allows you glimpses into the thoughts of America's founders, and paints a detailed image of the culture and politics of the era. At long last, these giants of American History reclaim center stage.

- Donald Fowler, National Chairman, Democratic National Committee, 1995-97
"Histories of the Articles of Confederation era have been written, of course, but Chorlton takes a path less traveled, focusing on the 14 men who served...as president of Congress...As Chorlton ably demonstrates, it's a history well worth keeping alive."
-John Bicknell, Editor, ROLL CALL (the newspaper of Capitol Hill)
