We like our heroes to wear white hats and our villains to wear black. Scoundrels Who Made America Great takes a fresh view of heroism by using a dramatic event in the life of each “scoundrel” to illustrate how disreputable labels can obscure heroic deeds. “Some of them are household names. Others have been forgotten till now. Some are villains who turned out to be heroes. Others are heroes who proved to be all too human. They are The Scoundrels. And Martin Henley has brought them to life in a vividly-written volume that overflows with surprising stories, little-known facts, and the pure drama of history. Enjoy.” —William Martin, New York Times Bestselling author of The Lost Constitution and The Lincoln Letter “By showing that the meanings assigned to the actions of prominent historical figures by contemporaries as well as future generations can fluctuate dramatically, Martin Henley’s book inspires readers to reflect on the very nature of history. It helps them to understand that both scoundrels and heroes are made by their deeds as much as by the collective memory that shifts with time and place.” —Michal Rozbicki, Professor of History, St. Louis University “With the rigorous research of a scholar and the superb story-telling skills of a novelist, Martin Henley has penned a wonderful book about five historical “scoundrels” who, upon further reading, were not the dreadful miscreants all of us have been led to believe. “Scoundrels who Made America Great” is a highly readable and truly enlightening slice of hidden history.” —Ronald E. Yates, Dean Emeritus, College of Media Studies, University of Illinois. Bestselling author of Finding Billy Battles website: www.martinhenley.com blog: www.ironicamericanhistory.blogspot.com

Anne Hutchinson was perhaps the most famous Englishwoman in colonial American history, viewed in later centuries as a crusader for religious liberty and a prototypical feminist. Michael Winship, author of the highly acclaimed "Making Herctics, Provides a startlingly new and fresh account of her oft-told tale, disentangling what really happened from the legends that have misrepresented her for so long. During the 1630s, religious controversies drove a wedge into the puritan communities of Massachusetts. Anne Hutchinson and other members began to speak out against mainstream doctrine, while ministers like John Cotton argued for personal discovery of salvation. The puritan fathers viewed these activities as a direct and dangerous threat to the status quo and engaged in a fierce and finally successful fight against them. Refusing to disavow her beliefs, Hutchinson was put on trial twice-"first for slandering the colony's ministers, then for slandering the colony's ministers, then for heresy-"and banished from the colony. Combing archives for neglected manuscripts and ancient books for obscure references, winship gives new voice to other characters in the drama whose significance has not previously been understood. Here are Thomas Shepard, a militant heresy hunter who vigorously pursued both Cotton and Hutchinson; Thomas Dudley, the most important leader in Massachusetts after Governor John Winthrop; Henry Vane. A well-connected supporter of radical theology: and john supporter of radical theology: and John Wheelwright, a bellicose minister who was a lightning rod for the frustrations of other dissidents. Winship also analyzes the political struggle that almost destroyed the colony andplaces Hutchinson's trials within the context of this turmoil. As Winship shows, although the trials of Anne Hutchinson and her allies were used ostensibly to protect Massachusetts' Christian society. they instead nearly tore it
