Even as they were laying the framework for a new country, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and many of America’s other Founding Fathers were tending to another vital duty. They were raising families.

Saint Louis University history professor Lorri Glover discusses her new book, the first to explore how the Revolution remade family life as much as it reinvented political institutions. Focusing on Washington, Jefferson, James Madison, George Mason, and Patrick Henry, she describes the colonial households that nurtured future revolutionaries, follows the development of political and family values during the revolutionary years, and shines new light on the radically transformed world that was inherited by 19th-century descendants.
