Great Experiment: George Washington and the American Republic
$50.00
To most Americans, George Washington is a remote figure encased in myth, more a monument than a man. This new books brings him vividly to life once again - a man who was born a loyal subject of the British crown and became the leader of a radical revolution, a victorious military leader who relinquished the trappings of power to return to farming, a reluctant statesman who forged the institutions of a popular government that have endured for two centuries. The text is enhanced by numerous illustrations that reproduce an array of original documents, contemporary portraits, artifacts, and personal memorabilia of Washington and his family. This book is the catalogue for an exhibition that opens at the Huntington Library in Los Angeles in October 1998 and moves on to the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York City in September 1999.
