Harlow Unger talked about his book The Last Founding Father: James Monroe and a Nation’s Call to Greatness (Da Capo Press; September 29, 2009). In this biography he recounts the life of the fifth president of the United States, James Monroe (1751-1831). President Monroe served two-terms, was a decorated soldier in the Revolutionary War and held more public positions than anyone else in American history. His resume included tenures as a House member and senator, a secretary of state and war, governor of Virginia, and a U.S. minister to Britain and France. Mr. Unger responded to questions from members of the audience. close
