British historian Stephen Brumwell provides a vivid recounting of the formative years and military career of George Washington, following his journey from brutal border skirmishes with the French and their Native American allies, to his remarkable victory over the British, an achievement that underpinned his selection as the first president of the United States of America. Brumwell focuses on a side of Washington that is often overlooked: the feisty young frontier officer and the early career of the tough forty-something commander of the revolutionaries’ ragtag Continental Army. A book signing follows the program.
