In 1798 Robert Morris - "financier of the American Revolution", confidante of George Washington, recent US Senator - plunged from the peaks of wealth and prestige into debtor's prison and public contempt. Setting Morris' tale in the context of the nation's founding, this title focuses on an essential yet nearly forgotten American figure.
