David McCullough: Americans in Paris

Video background from The Library of Congress Webcasts site:

"When historian David McCullough announced his intention to write a book about Americans in Paris, his interest was in Americans who went to Paris in the years between 1830 and 1900, not, as he observed, 'to make a social splash, but with the ambition to excel. The old world was the new world to them,' says the author. McCullough discusses his latest work, The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris."
