“Dinner at Mr. Jefferson’s: Three Men, Five Great Wines, and the Evening that Changed America”

This is a terrific history book about the early years of our government when Thomas Jefferson was the reluctant first Secretary of State, Alexander Hamilton was the brilliant and volatile Secretary of the Treasury, and George Washington was the first president.

Find out what the Founding Fathers did when they weren't being icons of their age, but just politicians trying to get things done in a contentious time.

Here is a good summary of the book: http://dekerivers.wordpress.com/2008/03/09/dinner-at-mr-jeffersons-why-cant-it-be-like-that-today-in-washington/
