    1. This is a real good account about George Washington written by an author at the turn of the 1900 s So the book was written over 100 years ago, but it seemed really fresh and easy to read The author seemed to really like and admire Washington.I enjoyed it because I wanted to read biographies about people and I figure the first should go to America s first true hero What he accomplished just amazed me I knew most of what he did, but I got a better appreciation of him and what he did to lead us ag [...]

    2. Best biography of George Washington I ve read Lodge does a fantastic job of providing insight into the character of Washington, and counters some of the popular misconceptions of Washington being a snob and a gold digger It s a long book and can be a challenge because of the writing style It made George Washington become my all time hero.

    3. Still at this one because it s huge but it s really well written and possibly one of the best biographies I ve ever read.
