James Monroe is an easy president to miss. He's not a super controversial figure, but he's also not a guy who just lets people walk all over him. In this episode we discuss the early life of the last Founding Father to be the leader of our country, as well as the last president to have fought during the Revolutionary War. Ambassador to France, Secretary of State, Secretary of War, Delegate to the Virginia House, United States Senator and Governor of Virginia are just a few of Monroe's many job titles that we discuss in this episode! _______________ We recorded an audiobook! It’s about the letters between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr before their fateful duel.
