Abstract:

He was a gentleman farmer from Virginia, a brilliant and bold tactician who proved equally adept at leading men into battle and a young nation into the future. From his youth of privilege to his inauguration as the United States first president, here is George Washington's remarkable life. Exploring the truths, debunking the myths, it's the portrait of a man who first distinguished himself in the British forces, before creating the army that would ultimately defeat them. His was the pivotal role in establishing the modern world's first nation that was headed by neither a king nor an emperor.
