Here, from the legendary author John Dos Passos and American Heritage, are portraits of three men critical to the early history of the
United States:
Aaron Burr, whose political skills carried him to the threshold of the White House but was ultimately indicted for treason;
Lafayette, a hero of the American Revolution who could not apply his ideals to a France sliding into terror; and
Robert Morris, whose skills as a financier aided the new nation but led to his own ruin.
