    1 thought on “The Life of George Washington: Special Edition for Schools

    1. I am doggedly working my way through this book I think it is worth the effort, even though many reviewers here have denigrated it This is not a Cliff Notes summary, nor even a modern biography It is a contemporaneous account of the development of a unique American identity and the part played in it by our first president.Mr Marshall lived at the same time as Washington and was with the Continental Army as a Virginia militiaman during the entire campaign, including that winter at Valley Forge The [...]

    2. This was part of my month of reading about George Washington Though with 5 volumes, I did not finish it in the allotted month, and am still digging through it This is by far the most detailed of the Washington biographies I read, and the only one that deals with his presidency in much detail.I had not originally planned to read this as part of my month of George Washington, as 5 volumes is a bit daunting But then my mom sent me a set of all five volumes that originally belonged to my great uncle [...]

    3. It really did not focus on George Washington but on events surrounding his life About half the book dealt with the American Revolutionary War.

    4. No disrespect to John Marshall who s intent was to honor and document the history of the father of our countrybut unless you are a historian searching for new, random facts, this book is pretty bad It goes from small conflict to small conflict endlessly with no rhyme or reason other than chronology.

    5. I can t believe I read the whole thing It is difficult to read and is missing so much I wanted to know and understand what he thought and why I did not get that This is best used a a reference book, not as a book to be read and enjoyed.

    6. This book was a tough slog but worth the read Marshall was Washington s contemporary probably the closest we will get to the real Washington and his travails.
