About the eBook

George Washington is an American hero whose fame is not wholly accounted for by the record of his life. Like Lincoln he was infinitely greater than anything he did. A military genius, he wrested liberty from tyranny; a statesman, he helped evolve a stable government from political chaos; a patriot, he refused a crown. Wisdom, patience, tolerance, courage, consecration to the righteous cause animated his every act. Contents: Life of George Washington by Washington Irving George Washington by Woodrow Wilson Journal of My Journey Over the Mountains The Journal of Major George Washington: Sent by the Hon. Robert Dinwiddie to the Commandant of the French Forces in Ohio George Washington's Rules of Civility George Washington in Revolutionary War George Washington's Remarks About the French and Indian War Inaugural Addresses State of the Union Addresses Messages to Congress Washington's Masonic Correspondence Letters of George Washington Farewell Address Last Will and Testament

About the Author

George Washington (1732-1799) is not traditionally renowned as an author in the literary sense, but rather as the first President of the United States and a principal figure in the founding of the nation. Washington's contributions to literature primarily consist of numerous letters, diaries, speeches, and military orders, all testifying to his influential role in shaping American politics and society. The 'GEORGE WASHINGTON Ultimate Collection' provides an extensive compilation of these writings, underscoring the breadth and depth of his thoughts and actions over the course of his life and career. While not a novelist or poet, his writings nonetheless embody a historical and reflective prose style, offering insights into his leadership, personal values, and the emerging American ethos. Washington's works are not studied for their literary artistry but for their historical context and their reflection of the character of a man who was pivotal in the birth of the United States. His literary legacy is therefore inextricable from his monumental historical impact, and his words continue to be examined for their contributions to American identity and heritage.
