A review of George Washington: A Biography in Seven Volumes (New York: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1948-54) by Douglas Southall Freeman
This is the definitive George Washington biography and is for the serious reader. The life of Washington is in chronological order. Think of this book as reading, rather than watching, a TV series about Washington.
If you decide to commit the time to read it do not pass over the page notes. If you do you will miss a wealth of information. From the page notes I learned of three unique books: one dealing with his journey from Mount Vernon to New York for his first inauguration, one dealing with his Southern tour in 1791, and one dealing with the eulogies to Washington after his death.
