Description

This book identifies, describes, and provides access information 250 publicly accessible sites that commemorate the life and legacy of the first president of the United States. This book provides travellers with a roadmap to retrace many of the events and to experience many of the places that made up the life of this notable man. Section one provides a brief but unusual biography of George Washington in which emphasis is placed on the travels of the man -- his movements across the late colonial and early national landscape of eastern North America: why he travelled, what events transpired, what places were imprinted with his presence. Section two, the most extensive part of the book, identifies and describes numerous publicly accessible sites that commemorate Washington's life and accomplishments. Location and access information is provided for each site. Section three identifies sources of additional information about Washington's life and the sites that honour him.

Author Biography

After spending 42 years in the advertising and broadcasting industry, where he worked with such television icons as Groucho Marx, Johnny Carson, and Milton Berle; and spending twelve years as censor for "Saturday Night Live" - William Clotworthy retired and began to travel, to lecture, and to write. Now he turns his attention to identifying and describing sites commemorating American presidents-a subject of his own personal interest and one for which he found a lack of solid information as he began his travels across the country. Clotworthy is the author of two books, Homes and Libraries of the Presidents and Presidential Sites: A Directory of Places associated with Presidents of the United States.
