America is blessed to have the history and legacy of Frederick Douglass, written in his own words. CS Bennett is able to capture that real history as he portrays Douglass speaking to contemporary circumstances. Bennett does so with confidence; his fictional narrative is strongly supported by
Douglass's speeches and writings. So when you are reading America's Original Radical you can believe you are hearing the real Frederick
America is also blessed to have so many other documents and records that support our Founding Fathers' quest to get it right. Ben Franklin's auto biographies, Poor Richard's Almanacs and his records of the writing of our Declaration of Independence and the the almost six months of debates concerning our Constitution. We also have all the Federalist Papers written by James Madison. Alexander Hamilton and John Jay. Bennett's time travel perspective made these Founding Fathers' words come alive. It is certain Bennett's use of these original sources is both from his head and his heart.
The venue for the final and limited engagement of these Founding Fathers and Distinguished Patriots is appropriately Philadelphia's Independence Hall. And,for this reader, the anticipation of who and what was to be said was at a crescendo. Bennett did not disappoint; Ben Franklin, George Mason and The Presidents ending with President George Washington arriving...you need to buy and read this book to read the true stories told,in less than 40 pages, by these Patriots from the past.
I am reminded of the Steve Allen TV productions "Meeting of the Minds", Hal Holbrook's "Mark Twain Tonight" and much more recently, Charles Everett Pace's "An evening with Frederick Douglass".
Is "The Radical Democrats" next? John C. Calhoun, Andrew Jackson, Jefferson Davis...Woodrow Wilson, et al. Thanks Mr. Bennett. LKW
