Quotations of George Washington (Quote/Unquote) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Applewood Books is pleased to introduce a new series of quotation books which will collect and celebrate the words of great figures from American history. To kick off the series, we begin with three of the Founding Fathers Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln, who ended slavery and led the country through a civil war. The words of these men, from private journals, correspondence, speeches and public writings, are as inspiring and thought-provoking today as when they were first written. This new series is attractively packaged in trim hardcovers with a three-piece case binding. A classic portrait of the author peers out from the front cover with his signature printed below it in gold foil. Each volume contains about 100 quotations. These beautiful little books arrive just in time for the gift-giving holidays.

About the Author

George Washington was born in Virginia in 1732. As a young man, he learned the morals, manners, and knowledge necessary to become a Virginia gentleman. He was particularly interested in the military arts and western expansion. At the age of 16, he helped survey Shenandoah lands. At the age of 22, he was commissioned a lieutenant colonel and fought in the first battles of what became the French and Indian War. Unanimously elected as the first President of the United States, Washington served two terms before retiring to Mount Vernon. He passed away on December 14, 1799.
