The First Congress

As an eternal learner, I am constantly reading. I invite you each month to follow along with what I'm currently reading or check back periodically for hand-picked selections of my favorites. Here's what I'm reading this month:

On My Desk

  • The First Congress by Fergus M. Bordewich
    • Fergus Bordewich’s “The First Congress” is a riveting account of the most important Congress in American history. It crafted the Bill of Rights, set up the federal court system, created several executive departments, established a federal revenue system and set innumerable precedents that still shape American political life. Most importantly, it demonstrated that the democratic republic envisioned by the Founders could work. -TC
