Cheryl Harness utilizes her wonderfully vibrant art and down-to-earth writing style to"chip away the marble"and present George Washington as over a monument. We see George the adventurous boy, tromping by indicates of the woods with his dog and his hunting rifle; George the courageous military leader fighting alongside his men; George the cunning military strategist, outfoxing the British and forcing their surrender at Yorktown; George the brilliant statesman presiding over the Constitutional Convention; and George the President, wisely protecting our country from enemies foreign and domestic so it could develop strong. But through it all, we see George as happiest living as an experimental farmer at Mount Vernon with his wife, Martha. He could have been Emperor of America, but he chose to spend his last years"looking immediately after things that needed doing"at residence.
