Creating the American Nation
George Washington, the commander in chief of the American Revolutionary Army, was the ever practical military leader, president of the Federal Constitutional Convention, and first president of the United States. The collections of this famous former British colonial reflect his public career and his personal interests.
Written by George Washington and George Mason on July 17, 1774, at Mount Vernon, the Fairfax County Resolves were both a bold statement of fundamental constitutional rights and a revolutionary call for an association of colonies to protest British anti-American actions.
Yr. Most Humble Obt. Servt.
George Washington’s letterbooks separate out one side of a correspondence from another, but they gather together in one volume a rich record of activities for particular historical periods, and make available in one place copies of letters from Washington's numerous correspondents.
