His Excellency: George Washington
He's always sat up there on the mountain, almost god-like (at least that's what I got from school). It's sometimes hard to believe that he actually lived. He's more legend than he is man. This book, however, will make George Washington seem very human to you. Did you know that he and Thomas Jefferson were enemies at the end? I didn't know that. Heck of a story, and all true. It is a bit dry in places (a very serious historian writing here), but well worth the effort.
