Best known for his pivotal role as the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War and serving as the first President of the United States, Washington also engaged in intellectual and agricultural pursuits, which are often eclipsed by his military and political achievements. 'The Complete Works of George Washington' is a testament to his diverse contributions that encompass his military correspondence, presidency writings, and personal letters.

Posthumously compiled, Washington's complete writings provide scholars with the quintessential narrative of early American statesmanship and republican virtuosity.
