Washington: A Life By Ron Chernow
“The aspect of our politics has wonderfully changed since you left us”, wrote Thomas Jefferson about George Washington after America’s first president chose to retire at the end of his second term. Jefferson did not stop with comments like that. During Washington’s second term in office, Jefferson had insinuated that America’s first and only unanimously-elected president was lucky and over-rated. The political intrigue between these two very different founding fathers is just one of many interesting facets of this compelling biography of George Washington. The reader will learn about Washington’s ability to command undisciplined troops against a powerful British military, his influence in molding a new government, and all this against a backdrop of an on-going turbulent relationship with his mother. The nurturing of this new government was no easy task. During Washington’s second term, two political paradigms started taking shape. Washington pushed for a strong federal government while Jefferson led supporters for more states’ rights. Sounds like 2015!
