Description
George Washington wrote an astonishing number of letters, both personal and professional. The majority—some 140,000 documents—are from his years as commander in chief during the Revolutionary War. This book presents a chronological selection of Washington's most important and interesting letters. His lively and candid notes to his wife and family, to friends, to Congress, to fellow soldiers, and even to the enemy reveal his tactical and strategic thinking, while offering glimpses of his extremes of depression and exultation. The more personal missives show us a Washington who worried about his wife's well-being and who appreciated a good joke and a well-laid table, not to mention the company of ladies.
