George Washington: an Historical Biography
Washington's exploits, such as crossing the Delaware during the Revolutionary War, becoming President of the U.S., and chopping down the cherry tree are well-known. But, Washington was also a product of historical factors, and influenced them as well. Scudder, well-qualified to write Washington's biography, concentrates on little-known events, such as Washington's relationship with American Indians and the British army prior to the Revolutionary War. One fun read for anyone interested in American History.
