      Page from letter by John Adams to Dr. Benjamin Rush on the top ten talents of George Washington / Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, New York And Adams writes it in , so it’s a few years after Washington died — he died in — and they’re talking about Washington clearly in an exchange of letters here.   George Washington may be a no-brainer when discussing participants in the American Revolution because he practically won it on his own. He was the leader of the Continental Army. Everything any other regiment of any colonial military unit did during the Revolution was usually as a result of some instruction or strategy sent by him.

      He never wrote a book or even a long essay, unlike George Mason, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Adams. But Washington made the ideas of the American founding real. If you have read the book, you can use the book to help you answer questions. However, you can use other resources as well (and there are answers in the back and a useful link). The lapbook is about the Revolution not the book. The Bible section includes some of the things I wanted to discuss with my daughter after she’s read the book.

        Informs our understanding of American politics--then and now--and gives us a new perspective on the unpredictable forces that shape history. An illuminating study of the intertwined lives of the founders of the American republic--John Adams, Aaron Burr, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and George Washington/5(K).   Nor would I rob the fairer Sex of their share in the glory of a revolution so honorable to human nature, for, indeed, I think you Ladies are in the number of the best Patriots America can boast."-George Washington, Aug , in a letter to Annis Boudinot Stockton.
