George Washington dominated his era like few other Americans. Yet the complexity of the historic events he was involved in and the sheer magnitude of his correspondenceГўв‚¬вЂќthe most voluminous in colonial AmericaГўв‚¬вЂќcan be overwhelming for researchers.
The goal of this volume is to make the larger-than-life figure of George Washington accessible to modern researchers. In its 200 entries readers will discover a detailed and surprising portrait. Washington was not a cold, aloof, and unknowable man, but was extremely convivial by nature; a general who commanded the Continental army without pay but was a better administrator than military strategist; a man of deeds whose appearance was, according to one contemporary, 'truly noble and majestic;' a man known to his contemporaries for his complete honesty.
