David O. Stewart, "George Washington: The Political Rise of America’s Founding Father"

In conversation with Amanda Clark, Missouri Historical Society - Community Tours Manager 

Award-winning historian presents a fascinating account of how George Washington became the single most dominant force in the creation of the United States of America. Washington's rise constitutes one of the greatest self-reinventions in history. In his twenties, this third son of a modest Virginia planter had ruined his own military career thanks to an outrageous ego. By Thirty years later, he was unanimously elected the nation's first president. In this remarkable portrait, Stewart unveils the political education that made Washington a master politician —and America's most essential leader.
