After the Revolution

Profiles of Early American Culture

Joseph J. Ellis (Author, Mount Holyoke College)

Overview | Inside the Book

Through portraits of four figures—Charles Willson Peale, Hugh Henry Brackenridge, William Dunlap, and Noah Webster—Joseph Ellis provides a unique perspective on the role of culture in post-Revolutionary America, both its high expectations and its frustrations.

Each life is fascinating in its own right, and each is used to brightly illuminate the historical context.
