Description

George Washington slept, worked, and fought here . . . A historian's guide to Virginia sites and landmarks associated with the Founding Father. Born in the Tidewater region, George Washington was reared near Fredericksburg and took up residence at Mount Vernon along the Potomac River. As a young surveyor, he worked in Virginia's backcountry. He began his military career as a Virginia militia officer on the colony's frontier. The majority of his widespread landholdings were there-and his entrepreneurial endeavors ranged from the swamplands of the Southeast to the upper Potomac River Valley. In this book, historian John R. Maass explores the numerous sites all over the Commonwealth associated with Washington-and demonstrates their lasting importance. Includes photos and illustrations
