George Washington (1732-1799) was the first president of the United States, having led the Continental army to victory against the British during the American War of Independence. He became known as 'Father of the Country' owing to his key role in the formation of the nation, and is commemorated in its currency, postage stamps and the capital city's name. This biography, first published in 1807 and reissued here in the 1858 Boston edition, is a simply written narrative to inform the 'unlettered portion of the community', and is based on eye-witness accounts and personal recollections from those close to Washington. The author, a Congregationalist pastor from Worcester, Massachusetts, focuses on Washington's army career and his military campaigns, describing strategy, logistics and combat. The final chapters cover Washington's terms as President, and the book ends with an evaluation of his achievements.
