Product Description:

This intriguing collection of primary sources give students an intimate, first-person look at George Washington. The compilation features over 200 letters, speeches, addresses, military orders, and other writings by this great leader and first president of the United States. The book begins with a timeline, childhood letter to a friend, and his "Rules of Civility." Then it presents Washington's writings in chronological order. The works are grouped into fourteen chapters, each representing a different historical period (ie. "Making a Constitution: 1786-1788"). Each work specifies the date and place it was written, as well as the recipient (or audience). Many of the longer works have short summary phrases in the margins; this feature helps the reader quickly find relevant passages and aids in reading comprehension. Each work is numbered to correspond to the table of contents as well. Some examples of the many writings include letters to the president of Congress, circulars to the states, speeches to the military, presidential addresses, and correspondence to Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and many others. The book concludes with Washington's Last Will and Testament. Black and white reproductions of famous artwork precede each unit. The back of the book has an index of recipients and a subject index. Based almost entirely on materials reproduced from The Writings of George Washington from the Original Manuscript Sources, 1745-1799. Compiled and edited by W. B. Allen. 714 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
