The Return of George Washington - Softcover
By Pulitzer Prize winning historian Edward J. Larson. ISBN 978-0-06-224868-8. Copyright 2014. Softcover with 366 pages including notes and index, plus pages of color photographs and illustrations.
A masterful chronicle of how George Washington saved the United States by coming out of retirement four years after the War of Independence to lead a country on the brink of dissolution and secure its future. Though this period between the Revolution and the Presidency has previously been neglected in studies of Washington's life, Larson's striking reassessment shows that Washington's greatness in fact rests on these years, 1783-1789, and rightfully elevates our foremost Founding Father's "forgotten years" to a central place in American history.
