The Real George Washington: The True Story of America s Most Indispensable Man
There is properly no history; only biography, wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson. If that is true of the general run of mankind, it is particularly true of George Washington. The story of his life is the story of the founding of America. His was the dominant personality in three of the most critical events in that founding: the Revolutionary War, the Constitutional Convention, and the first national administration. Had he not served as America s leader in those three events, all three would likely have failed. And America as we know it today would not exist.
Why, after two centuries, does George Washington remain one of the most beloved figures in our history? The Real George Washington answers that question by giving us a close look at this man who became the father of our country and the first American President. But rather than focus on the interpretations of historians, the books tells much of his exciting story in his own words. The second part of this 928-page book brings together the most important and insightful passages from Washington s writings, conveniently arranged by subject. Published by National Center for Constitutional Studies, a non-profit organization.
