Sons Of The Founding Fathers 18

Most Americans have at least a passing familiarity with George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and their contemporaries. UT-Austin historian H.W. Brands joins us to talk about the men who took the baton from the Founding Fathers and put their ideas to work. Brands is the author of “Heirs of the Founders: The Epic Rivalry of Henry Clay, John Calhoun and Daniel Webster, the Second Generation of American Giants” (Doubleday).
