Show Me History will show you the real man behind the myths!
Known as the “Father of Our Country,” George Washington lost his own father at the age of 11, was a surrogate father to Alexander Hamilton, and yet was never a father himself. In war and in peace, he left an unmistakable impression on his new nation in more ways than you know. George Washington: Soldier and Statesman! tells the story of the United States’ first president—from his rise as a soldier fighting for American freedom from Great Britain to his legacy as an impartial statesman who put his country before himself. Readers of all ages will be entertained and educated by the full-color illustrations and historically accurate narrative of this graphical biography.
