His Excellency George Washington


Author: Joseph J. Ellis SKU: 5398 Category:


To this landmark biography of our first president, Joseph J. Ellis brings the exacting scholarship, shrewd analysis and lyric prose that have made him one of the premier historians of the Revolutionary era. Training his lens on a figure who sometimes seems as remote as his figure on Mount Rushmore, Ellis assesses Washington as a military and political leader and a man whose “statue-like solidity” concealed volcanic energies and emotions.
