Besides getting a great soldier, farmer, politician, and president, George Washington liked to write. Some of the writings are personal, expressing love and concern for his family, friends, and property. By becoming introduced to Washington's words, readers will get to understand a man who was not superhuman--only dedicated to family, friends, home, and the nation he helped shape. Some of the writings are national in focus. Washington kept journals and diaries, wrote letters, and ready speeches and official documents throughout his life. Each Washington selection is accompanied by an introduction that offers historical background. Here is a selection of Washington's writings that follow his life from an entry in his journal written as a teenager to his last diary entry written the day before he died. His writings fill volumes and number in the thousands.
