Wow, details details details, Erik Larson really got it right this time. I was disappointed in his non-fiction In the Garden of Beasts, but if he had written that book like he wrote this book, he would have had 5 stars in my opinion. The historical details and factoids in this book were amazing. The time period is FASCINATING with all the firsts happening for a young America. The characters were deep and interesting, and the story took hold and held on to you to the end. A favorite for sure!
