Publisher: Simply Magazine
Date: December 2012
Duration: 1 hours 56 minutes
George Washington was the only President elected unanimously in the electoral college; George III, his old adversary from the Revolutionary War, said he was the greatest man of his age because he renounced power as an all powerful military leader to return to private life; he did it again when pleaded with to run for a third term. Four of his works are read in their entirety: His Inaugural Addresses, His short work On Government, and his Farewell Address which is as important as any other American document. Hear him; read him; learn from the Mozart of American Politics.
