Historians have dismissed the ten years it took to ready the new capital as nothing more than man’s inability to tame a swamp. In a brilliant narrative Bob Arnebeck shows how with slave axe-men, lawyers’ writs, and speculators’ greed a hilly, well wooded paradise was turned into a land of stumps, ruts, shacks, and isolated mansions.The stories of slaves and workers are at last told.
