About the Guest

Leslie G. Mironuck is an American and Canadian citizen who immigrated to St. Louis in 1986 and is the author of “Irreconcilable Differences.” This book studies the life stories of fifty of our Founding Fathers and chronicles how they came to grips with their Irreconcilable Differences with Great Britain. Pulling almost exclusively from primary sourced material, Les discovers who they were, what they believed, and why they were willing to pledge their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor in pursuit of America’s potential.
