The book's real bombshell, however, is the author's insistence that ex-president Jefferson connived in the . The death in 1809 of explorer and territorial governor Meriwether Lewis was ruled a suicide, but Chandler attempts to prove it was a murder implicating the president himself.

The book's real bombshell, however, is the author's insistence that ex-president Jefferson connived in the suicide cover-up story. Jefferson allegedly used Wilkinson in a number of dubious activities and could not risk the general's exposure. Chandler's reconstruction rests heavily on poorly documented inferences. In doing so, he shows that byzantine White House scandals and cover-ups are nothing new.

Chandler sets out to prove that the mysterious death in 1809 of explorer Meriwether Lewis was a murder and that . Despite Chandler's bias against Jefferson, his role in a possible cover-up, much less a conspiracy, remains questionable.

Chandler sets out to prove that the mysterious death in 1809 of explorer Meriwether Lewis was a murder and that the plot was masterminded by an ally of former president Thomas Jefferson and sanctioned by Jefferson himself. The death of Lewis - explorer with William Clark, protÉgÉ of Jefferson, and governor of the newly acquired Louisiana Territory - caused surprisingly little scandal or inquiry, despite its strange circumstances. Chandler fits persuasive, albeit circumstantial, evidence into the puzzle of Lewis's death, si.

Three years after his famous exploration of the West, Meriwether Lewis was at the height of his reputation and career. He was governor of the Louisiana Territory, Thomas Jefferson's protege, and a viable presidential candidate. Then in 1809, at the age of thirty-five, Lewis was found dead in the yard of a backwoods Tennessee inn. Since that time, historians have fostered the belief that Meriwether Lewis was a suicide - an alcoholic, and a depressive personality

Great book even if a little farfetched. There is some excellent writing hear and frankly the author does an excellent job of capturing a fairly unkown period of American history. He pulls together a lot of different threads before launching his conjecture which was that Merriweather Lewis was murdered by America's top ranking general. Whether or not he played a hand in the death of Lewis he was an unbelievable scoundrel, incometant to boot as well as being a spy for the Spanish. And yet he was still able to rise and become rich. There are some very interesting insights into the politics of the era as well as into Jefferson who had an uneasy but complicit relationship with General Wilkinson. I reccomend the book just for it's great research and writing. The last couple of chapters can be read as interesting movie plot but probably should be dismissed as an imaginative reconstruction of what happened which was probably a suicide, but who knows.

What a pleasant surprise. I was sent a first edition hard copy. With notes. I read it backwards in 15 minutes. I had previously read a copy from the local library. So I already knew the book. The notes are outstanding. My favorite mark is the tiny dot opposite the word PRESIDENT. I PACKED THE BOOK BACK UP AND I WAIT FOR MY SON TO GROW UP. I consider this copy a borrowed book, and I will keep it in pristine condition. I would buy again from same seller and recommend this seller to all.

Author goes around the world to make his point. The lead in gives u a good back ground on the politics of the era. The conclusions in the book are thought provoking

I'm just starting this book but I can tell the author is someone special. His insights are illuminating. Second chapter is a summaration of The Rev War highlighting the participants and their importance. It is the most concise and accurate I have ever read. That chapter alone is worth the price of the book. I look forward to "the rest of the story".

One wonders why Meriweather Lewis is buried in a forlorn grave, out of public's sight, just off the Natchez Trace Parkway south of Nashville instead of Arlington Cemetary. Lewis was the John Glenn (the astronaut) of his day! Chandler, the author, broke historical ground in pulling together the intrigues of an intriguing era. The author persuasively shows the possible motives several powerful men may have had in quietly disposing of Lewis. It is significant that the only mention of Lewis being prone to melancholy (suicidal) was a statement by Jefferson. Great reading: International intrigue (Spain), a corrupt General of the Army (Wilkinson), frontier murder, and retired President concerned about his public legacy.
