This is the story of George Washington covering his entire life but mostly the period of time when he first came to own Mount Vernon up to his Presidency. It contained a lot of interesting facts and lets you see more about this most interesting and important person in the history of the USA.

Received in the mail yesterday. Thanks for tagging me, bookstogive!

I'm not sure when this one will rise to the surface of Mt. TBR but it is safe with me until then :)

Journal Entry 4 by glade1 at McLeansville, North Carolina USA on Thursday, June 24, 2021
I realized as I read this book how little I actually knew about George Washington. I feel this book gave me a good overview of his life. He played a lot of things close to his chest, and Martha destroyed all their correspondence when he died, so it still seems hard to really know him, but I think this author makes some pretty good guesses. How amazing to be front and center in such an important time, and of course he knew it so he worked hard to cultivate his personality and memory, but not in the way a lot of folks would have - he was quite wise with most of his decisions. Very good read.

Marking as available for now.
