The Leaders of the First American Republic

Thomson never held elected office, but Chorlton calls him “the greatest patriot of all” and asserts that, “Without his prodding and pleading, Congress would never have survived. Without his faithful service, the record of the First American Republic would be lost to history.”

As Chorlton ably demonstrates, it’s a history well worth keeping alive.

CHECK OUT

Author Thomas Patrick Chorlton will speak about his book, “The First American Republic: 1774-1789,” at noon today at the William G. McGowan Theater at the National Archives on Constitution Avenue Northwest, between Seventh and Ninth streets.
