Description
More than two centuries after his death, George Washington has been transformed from a brilliant general and statesman into a semimythical founding father whose somber face adorns the dollar bill. A biographer of Thomas Jefferson and Benedict Arnold, Willard Sterne Randall here renders in human terms the first president, with an emphasis on Washington's formative years as a farmer and soldier, and detailing the symbolic and political implications of Washington relinquishing power at two important junctures in his career.
