This book is the engrossing and little-known story of a powerful circle of men- the wing of the Federalist party led by Alexander Hamilton- who won a bitter fight for a national army, but divided the country and destroyed their own party in the process. Here is history that raises questions about the power and influence of militarism in American politics: Did Alexander Hamilton intentionally provoke the Whiskey Rebellion to prove the need for a federal army? Were the Federalists prepared to use military force to prevent Thomas Jefferson from becoming President in 1800? Were these men militarists? Were they after a national army in order to maintain their own power? Unfolding the critical events of America's first two decades of Independence- the incredible Newburgh Conspiracy of 1783, the first Constitutional debates over qnational security, q Shay's Rebellion, the Indian War campaigns of qMad Anthonyq Wayne, the Quasi-War with the French- this timely book chronicles the origins of American militarism, and the serious threat it posed to the democratic ideals of the young American nation. -- from Book JacketThis book is the engrossing and little-known story of a powerful circle of men- the wing of the Federalist party led by Alexander Hamilton- who won a bitter fight for a national army, but divided the country and destroyed their own party in ...
