What Do You Know About the Intimate Lives of the Founding Fathers?

When it comes to the Revolutionary era, there’s no better storyteller than best-selling author Tom Fleming.

The fascinating, in-depth tales that pack his recent book, “The Intimate Lives of the Founding Fathers,” are most relevant for our “Grateful American™ TV Show,” hosted by David Bruce Smith and Hope Katz Gibbs.

Don’t miss our Q&A with Fleming, filmed in the formal dining room of Alexander Hamilton’s home, The Grange, in upper New York City.

Be sure to check out this TV episode to learn:

  • What were the lives of the great figures in American history really like, including George Washington, Ben Franklin, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison?
  • What role did the Founding Mothers play in the lives of these famous men—such as George Washington’s mother, Mary Ball Washington, who was known to be not particularly affectionate.
  • How do the customs of the 18th century differ from today’s, including those on courting, medicine, and hygiene?
  • What makes it so important that stories about the country’s Founding Fathers and Founding Mothers live on—especially in the minds of children?
  • And how can parents help their kids develop a passion for history?

Plus, you’ll find three important ideas about the Founding Fathers and Founding Mothers that your family can talk about tonight at the dinner table.
