Reading A Magnificent Catastrophe: The Tumultuous Election of 1800, America's First Presidential Campaign (quite a mouthful) by Edward J. Larson.  Rooney recommended it as a good book that took place in early US history, and so far it hasn't disappointed.  It is making me realize how little I know about the early history of my nation.  Hamilton's and Adams' monarchical sympathies, Jefferson's fears of encroaching tyranny, outrage at standing armies and the Alien and Sedition Acts.  Some good stuff here.
