Originally published in 1889, "George Washington" is the first volume to be reissued in a classic series of biographies of the Founding Fathers.
According to the majority of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century historians, the most remarkable event during America’s founding era did not take place on battlefields, during the course of the great constitutional debates, or in the midst of diplomatic negotiations with European powers.
It occurred instead when the field commander of the Continental army—Gen. George Washington—surrendered his commission to congressional authorities at Annapolis in a humble demonstration of what it means to be a leader who serves the nation instead of himself.
