George Washington

(2007)
A non fiction book by

 
"First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen"-and first in the minds of schoolchildren, who learn about George Washington as soon as they begin studying American history. From Washington's Virginia childhood, through his days as a soldier and general, to his inauguration as the first President of the brand-new United States, and into retirement, this biography captures the full breadth and achievements of his life. It covers both the personal and the private, reveals his views on everything from governmental power to the abolition of slavery, and separates fascinating truth from well-worn legend-including that infamous, but false, tale about chopping down the cherry tree.
