I'm not into American History but I did enjoy the first chapter of the text where it details the most famous duel in American history. Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr met on July 11, 1804 near Weehawken, New Jersey in a challenge of honor. Hamilton's resulting death is examined, and Ellis also discusses how the duel reveals the importance of personal reputation in the days of a nascent government. I can't say it was the most important event of the early republic but it was pretty entertaining.
