Wow, this book is immensely powerful. I feel like it should be required empathy reading for at least every American citizen, especially our young people. The author goes about unapologetically telling the true story of the founding of our nation, and the brutal treatment that humans are capable of toward one another. The book really demanded my full attention, and I took lots of notes. It was really fascinating. Recommend, but not for a "light" read.
