Contrary to the popular historical record, Thomas Jefferson was not even a minor player at the Dinner Table Bargain, now known as the Compromise of 1790. Instead, President George Washington and New York Senator Philip Schuyler engaged in the battle that separated our financial capital from our political seat of power. As son-in-law to Schuyler and surrogate son to George Washington, Alexander Hamilton was helplessly caught in the middle. Evoking a very different New York City, Susan Nagel re-creates this pivotal moment by capturing the spirit, speech, and sensibility of the era.
