Overview
The extraordinary life of James Monroe: soldier, senator, diplomat and the last Founding Father to hold the presidency, who helped transform thirteen colonies into a vibrant and mighty republic

Monroe lived a life defined by revolutions. From the battlefields of the War for Independence to his ambassadorship to France in the days of the guillotine, to his own role in the creation of Congress’s partisan divide, he was a man who embodied the restless spirit of the age. He was never one to back down from a fight, whether it be with Alexander Hamilton, with whom he nearly engaged in a duel (prevented, ironically, by Aaron Burr), or George Washington, his hero-turned-political-opponent. When the British sacked the capitol in 1814, it was Monroe, by now secretary of state, who rallied troops and volunteers to America’s defense, reliving old glories. Yet even in temperament, he was capable of radical change, as displayed when he was elected the fifth president of the United States. The last of his generation to wield such power, this fiercest of partisans instead sought to bridge divisions and sow unity, calming turbulent political seas and inheriting Washington’s mantle of placing country above party. Over his two terms, he transformed the United States, strengthening American power both home and abroad.

Critically-acclaimed author Tim McGrath has delved into an astonishing array of primary sources, many rarely ever seen since Monroe’s own time, to conjure up this remarkable portrait of an essential American statesman and president.
