Russ Castronovo looks at famous patriots like George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Paine; the playwright Mary Otis Warren; and the poet Philip Freneau; providing various anecdotes that demonstrate the ways propaganda was - contrary to our instinctual understanding - fundamental to democracy rather than antithetical to it
