Being George Washington: The Indispensable Man, as You've Never Seen Him
Combining biography and Washington's own writings with his own comments and sidebars, Beck explores our nation's first president and describes how Washington's beliefs and values--beliefs and values which united a country in an age even more fractious than our own--are especially important to remember today.
Introduction : Had I not been a witness -- Victory or death -- The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph -- When none expected much, he did the unexpected -- A valley forged of despair -- A good general, a great author -- Whom can we trust now? -- A tale of two founders -- The war turns at Yorktown -- Yorktown falls -- The world turned upside down -- Gray in your service -- A moment of crisis, a lifetime of preparation -- To please all is impossible -- LIttle short of a miracle -- A final farewell -- A humble agent of heaven -- Conclusion : True greatness dwells in the soul.
