9780815681533: George Clinton: Master Builder of the Empire State

George Clinton, born in July 1739 on his family's farm in Ulster County, New York, had a life spanning the final days of the British colonial era through the early years of the new republic. He served as witness to and leading actor in the events leading to the Declaration of Independence and the Revolutionary War. In George Clinton: Master Builder of the Empire State, John K. Lee brings new attention to New York State's first governor. He focuses on Clinton's extraordinary military exploits, detailing the victorious Sullivan-Clinton campaign against the Six Nations, which paved the way for the surrender of Cornwallis and ensured eventual American possession of western New York lands. This engaging biography, enriched with an array of illustrations, shines a bright light on an early American politician whose remarkable vision and leadership powerfully shaped the Empire State.

About the Author:

John K. Lee served as managing director at the Center for Marketing Communications in Princeton, New Jersey.

Review:

"George Clinton (1739-1812) is one of those people who performed long and valued public service in their times but remain largely unknown in the modern world. A combat veteran of the French and Indian War, Clinton would go on to be a leader of New York's patriots and to serve as governor of the state from 1777 to 1795. An opponent of the U.S. Constitution, Clinton became an advocate after the Bill of Rights was added. Following retirement from his long tenure as New York's governor, he went on to serve as Vice-President under both Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. The longest serving governor in American history, Clinton is also the first Vice-President to die in office. This brief and heavily illustrated volume is a handy introduction to a figure critical to both his state's and his country's formative decades. Still, the question remains: How could such an individual disappear so completely from modern eyes"- Historical Novels Review --Historical Novels Review
