Summary

''From the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning best-seller Founding Brothers and the National Book Award-winning best-seller American Sphinx-a landmark biography that brings to life in all his complexity the most important and perhaps least understood figure in American history. Drawing from the catalogued Washington papers at the University of Virginia, Joseph Ellis follows Washington from his military career through his years as president. He illuminates the difficulties the first executive faced as he worked to keep the emerging country united in the face of adversarial factions. He details aspects of Washington's private life-his marriage and subsequent entrance into the upper echelons of Virginia's plantation society, his large debts, his attitude toward slavery, his relationship with his profligate stepson-that shaped the public figure. Throughout, Ellis reveals to us Washington in the context of 18th-century America, allowing us to comprehend the magnitude of his accomplishments and the character of his heart and mind as they might have been perceived in his own time. Brilliantly conceived, His Excellency is a revelatory biography-and certain to be one of the most widely read and talked about books of the decade.''
