For two centuries George Washington has been universally acknowledged as the one indispensable founder of the American Republic. This one-volume edition-the most comprehensive and authoritative ever published-covers five decades of Washington's astonishingly active life and brings together over 440 letters, orders, addresses, diaries, and other writings. The only collection to include both public and personal documents, this Library of America volume reveals Washington to have been a forceful, accomplished, and at times eloquent writer. Above all, it demonstrates the keen practical intelligence that distinguished his leadership in war and peace, and the patriotism, dignity, and sense of honor that won the admiration and trust of Americans in his own time and in succeeding generations.
